SERGIO AGUERO’S younger brother launched an astonishing attack on Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.
Mauricio del Castillo claimed the Catalan ‘had never wanted’ his veteran striker after Aguero played his last game for the Citizens.
He made his comment in a tweet he later deleted, writing: “Guardiola never wanted my brother since his arrival at City.”
Asked why he had erased the message by social media followers, Mauricio said: “Many toxic people, too many.”
Warned the message had been seen by another Twitter user, he responded: “Perfect, I’m glad people have seen it.
“And I’ll write it again if I want.”
Aguero joined City in 2011 from Atletico Madrid and has helped fire the club to five Premier League titles, including three in Guardiola’s five years in charge.
He announced earlier this year this season would be his last at the Etihad and Guardiola was very emotional as he said goodbye to the striker after the Premier League season.
But Aguero could not bow out in the perfect way with City losing to Chelsea in the Champions League final.
The forward came on as a late substitute in Porto but was left in tears at full-time as Kai Havertz’s goal proved the difference.
Aguero was expected to sign for Barcelona before heading to Argentina to join the national team ahead of two World Cup qualifiers and the Copa America.
Reports suggest he may not put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Catalan giants for the time being because his friend Lionel Messi has yet to finalise his new contract with Barcelona.
