Getafe defender, Lucas Licht has declared that Atletico Madrid forward, Sergio Aguero, is one of the best players in the world right now.
Licht, who will take on Aguero when the two sides meet on Sunday evening, was mainly questioned about the bad run of form that the forward is currently in.
The Getafe man claimed that even though he has not been scoring many goals, 'Kun' only needs one chance to punish opponents.
"It is a run of form that players have, it happens to everyone. He was not scoring, but we know that 'Kun' is a great player, one of the best in the world, and we know we have to be attentive," he told AS.
"He has very few chances, but the ones that he does have he takes, like the last one he scored. He is one of those players that you know you cannot leave because he changes the game."
Licht also acknowledged that Atletico have other influential players aside from Aguero, but that his partnership with Diego Forlan is "very important" for Los Colchoneros.
However, despite all the praise for Atletico, Licht is not resigned to defeat yet, and believes that the new high line defensive tactics of Abel Resino could help Getafe.
"It benefits us, above all with the speed of Uche and the wingers, and we can take advantage of it. We will have to play well though, as we are going to a tough stadium," he admitted.
"We are motivated than them, we know how they play and to play against a big team always motivates us, that is key for us. Besides, we nearly always play better and in the end they nearly always beat us."
Licht also spoke about the possibility of a potential call-up to the Argentina side under Diego Maradona one day.
"Maradona can do very well with the national team, he knows the players, he has won it all and he is an idol. He has mentioned me a few times and I hope my chance will come," he concluded.
