The Argentine put off questioning over his future and focused on an exhilarating victory for his side at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday

Sergio Aguero affirmed that he was delighted with his contribution to Manchester City's incredible 5-3 victory over Monaco, while assuring that Pep Guardiola would ask even more of him in the future. 

The Argentine's two goals proved vital at the Etihad Stadium as Pep's men fought back from behind to take the upper hand in the Champions League tie. 

But having lost his place to Gabriel Jesus prior to the former Palmeiras striker's metatarsal injury, he warned that his manager would not be content with the double strike.

City vs Monaco showed why we love football

"The truth is [Pep and I] get on very well. What he wants, above everything, from all the players is that we push a little more," he told reporters after the final whistle. 

"He's always asking me for more, more, more, obviously it's a sacrifice I have to make, that we all have to make, and fortunately tonight it worked and we'll see if it keeps working in the next game.

"[The tie] is not over but it's important that we're two goals up, if it was one obviously it would be more complicated."

Aguero also reiterated his desire to stay at City, and pledged to keep battling to maintain his spot in the starting line-up. 

"The truth is that those things are for the manager to decide, the only thing I can do is keep fighting to be able to play. Fortunately he counted on me, now I have to help the team and show what I can do," he said. 

"I've always said I want to be here at the club, I've always said that at the end of the season it won't be my decision.

"The truth is that with these things it's the club that handles everything, and obviously it's always my intention to stay."

City and Monaco will lock horns again at Stade Louis II on March 15, with the Premier League club knowing they are guaranteed a quarter-final place should they take a positive result or lose by a single goal in Monaco.
