Aguero: Messi dreams of being like me!

Sergio Aguero has claimed that Argentina team-mate Lionel Messi dreams of being like him - not the other way round! The City forward is hoping to follow up Premier League and Capital One Cup success by leading his country to victory at the World Cup in Brazil this summer. But, in an interview with himself to launch PUMA's new Tricks boot, Aguero joked that he is his nation's best hope rather than Barca star Messi. He said: "I don't dream about being like Messi... because he dreams of being like me!" Aguero interview The 25-year-old also explained that he will not be worried if he does not start the tournament with a bang, as he expects goals to come eventually. "If I fail to score in the group stage, I can keep believing I will score in the knockout stage, because that's already happened to me," he added. "It happened in Beijing at the Olympics. I was in the starting XI throughout the group stage and I didn't score. Then in the quarter-finals I didn't score, but the manager believed in me and in the semi-finals I scored twice against Brazil. "So I know I will believe in myself because I have already experienced that exact situation. You have to stay calm and believe the goals will come. You might score loads of goals in the group stage and then none in the latter stages."
