Sergio Aguero has hailed on loan star, Frank Lampard since his arrival at the Etihad and says the former Chelsea star will be the reason why City regain the title should they win the league.

Aguero has been lauded as City’s main threat, however, the Argentine insists Lampard’s influence on the team has been incredible. Speaking to Sky Sports, Aguero said, “He’s been a really important player for us – a key player. “Whether he starts the game or comes on in the second half, he’s played a really key role in most of the games he’s featured in,” said Aguero.

“It would be fantastic if he could stay – he’s a Premier League legend – and it’s been a real pleasure for me to line up alongside him. I can always say that I played alongside Frank Lampard.

“It’s something the club will decide but if we could get him to stay longer, I think he could be the difference.”

Meanwhile, City boss Manuel Pellegrini has suggested that City could look to extend Lampard’s stay at City. “We are going to decide in December when we have to make the decision,” said Pellegrini, speaking after victory at St Mary’s.

“We’re going to have to make the best decision for him, the club, New York City, for everyone

“He’s very happy here in our team and we’re very happy with him.”

Should City try and keep hold of Frank Lampard?
