When PUMA signed Sergio Aguero, they knew what they would be getting from the acrobatic Argentinian – goals, goals, goals! He's one of Europe's deadliest strikers and after a stunning debut season in the Premier League, has helped raise the profile of the brand's speed silo. Quite a signing then!
Now PUMA have designed a boot to help make their star man even deadlier on the football pitch! Pace is everything in football – which is why PUMA have built the new evoSPEED 1; their most advanced boot designed to help players acheive top speed and enhance their manoeuvrability. Will there be any catching Sergio Aguero next season?
How do you like your new boots, the evoSPEED 1 FG?
Sergio Aguero: The new boots really impressed me. As a striker I always need to get up to speed very quickly and the boots seem to be perfectly suitable for this. I like how flexible the sole is, it helps me to change directions quicker and really distinguishes them from other football boots.
What is the main difference between the evoSPEED 1 and other boots you've worn?
SA: Probably the comfort – that is the most noticeable thing. They are really comfortable to wear.
How do you feel your first season has been at Manchester City?
SA: Really good. I feel very settled in England, I am happy with my team-mates and at the club, and delighted that I was able to help us win the Premier League in my first year here.
Were you satisfied with your own performances throughout the season?
SA: Yes, I think so. I have adapted pretty well and, like I say, I am settled in England. I came to Manchester City to win titles and that is what we have done.
Where do you see room to improve?
SA: There are lots of things to work on. It is nothing specific - my left foot, my heading - just that you have to keep working on everything, improving as much as you can. I am learning a lot every day, though. I have changed a lot as a player in England and I am sure I will keep on improving.
Do you feel settled in Manchester?
SA: Yes, of course. I like the fans, the city, and the style of life. I am very quiet, and living here suits me. My family is very happy here, too.
What is the best thing about living in England?
SA: When it is not raining? I like the fans. They are very respectful.
What are the targets for next season?
SA: More titles. We have to get better, because we know our rivals will improve. And we want to make progress on Europe, too. The Champions League is important for the club.
Euro 2012 - who are the contenders?
SA: I don't mind who wins, particularly, but I will definitely be watching it. There are some really good teams. Spain, Germany and Holland will all be very strong.
Aguero has also joined forces with his fellow PUMA team-mates Usain Bolt, Fernando Alonso, Rickie Fowler and Yuvraj Singh in the brands new “Everyone Can Bolt” video. The evoSPEED is a cross category product, that exists across all PUMA sport categories and incorporates technologies inspired by Usain Bolt, the World’s Fastest Man.
