Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has revealed his all-time dream XI but there is no place in the Argentine hitman's side for any of his current team-mates or a single English player.

The 26-year-old has lit up the Premier League since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and has picked an array of talent from past and present to make up a formidable-looking side.

The Argentina international has set up an attacking team playing 3-4-2-1. Here, in his own words, Aguero explains his selections.

GOALKEEPER

Oliver Kahn

My goalkeeper would be Oliver Kahn because I've always liked him. He's made history with Bayern Munich and that's why I'd pick him.

DEFENDERS

Roberto Ayala, Sergio Ramos, Fernando Hierro

Hierro is a legend and he's good in the air, just like Roberto Ayala. Then Sergio Ramos is a player I like a lot.

It's a courageous defensive line. They would just need to focus on winning the ball back and passing it to the midfielders.

MIDFIELDERS

Roberto Carlos, Xavi, Fernando Redondo, Andres Iniesta

It's a line of four in the midfield. All but one are genuine midfielders. The exception is Roberto Carlos who I would play on the left wing to cross the ball.

The other three midfielders are Xavi, Redondo and Iniesta, they would keep the ball. I don't know how they are going to track back, though.

FORWARDS

Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi, Ronaldo

Then up front, Messi and Diego Maradona and as centre forward Ronaldo, the Brazilian.

The Argentines will fight a little bit bacause they are both left footed. I wouldn't really restrict them. I would tell them to play freely. We would just need one of the two to be in form to win any game.

One of them can have a temperature one day not the other one. If they bot have a temperature then Ronaldo would need to step up.

Ronaldo had pace and power and how good was his finishing? He's the kind of striker that only needed to touch the ball once or twice to score a brace. Only great player like him can do that. That is why I have always liked him.
