Man City legend explains why Mauricio Pochettino has ‘advantage’ over Pep Guardiola

Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has claimed new Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has an ‘advantage’ Pep Guardiola did not have when he joined Manchester City.

“Well, obviously Pochettino knows the Premier League well. I remember the times we had to play against his team, it was hard,” Aguero told Stake.com.

“I think he can do good things for the team since he already knows a lot about how the Premier League works and that’s a good advantage because sometimes coaches who go to the Premier for the first time don’t know and it usually costs them a little more.

“For Guardiola himself, the first year he came to the Premier, it cost him, and he understood the way in which the Premier League is played and the following year he modified it and from there we did not stop winning.

“So, I think that on that side Pochettino plays in his favour because he knows the League a lot and I think he can also fight in the top positions.”
