FC Barcelona's new striker Sergio Agüero has already enjoyed a long and distinguished career in football and during that time, at both club and international level, he he has coincided with various FC Barcelona figures. Let's take a look.
At the start of his career at Independiente in Argentina, 'Kun' Agüero made his debut at the age of just 15 in the same fixture that was former Barça defender Gabi Milito's final game for the club before making the move to European football.
In his first three years with the Argentine club his coach was none other than César Luis Menotti, the Barça boss in the 1983/84 season in which the Club claimed the Copa del Rey, the Copa del Liga and the Spanish Super Cup.
During his five seasons in the capital with Atlético he also played alongside former blaugranes Simao Sabrosa from 2007 to 2011, Thiago Motta (2007-08), Luis García (2007-09) and in his final season in 2010/11 he also played alongside La Masia product Fran Mérida.

Not forgetting, of course, Agüero played under former FC Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola for the last fives seasons of his career in Manchester from 2016 to 2021 and along fellow Barça new boy Eric Garcia.
