Manchester City star Sergio Aguero reveals the reason why he does not dive.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has said that he is "really bad" at diving and therefore unwilling to risk a yellow card by going down too easily.

The Argentine international has gained a reputation for staying on his feet since arriving in England from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

"It's funny because many people have told me I need to go down more," the 25-year-old told The Mirror. "My reaction, though, is it would be an automatic yellow because I'm really bad at it!

"My character and style of play mean I will carry on and stay on my feet as much as possible. If I fall, I'll get up again and go after the ball. That's just the way I am."

Aguero has been in fine form this season, netting 18 in 19 appearances across all competitions.
