Guardiola: Aguero struggling to play after Maradona's death

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says Sergio Aguero is struggling to play following the death of Diego Maradona. 

Maradona passed on on Wednesday evening after reportedly suffering a heart attack. The Argentine was Aguero's former father-in-law following his marriage Gianinna, his youngest daughter, and was grandfather to the Manchester City striker's 11-year-old son, Benjamin. 

"It's difficult for me to talk about his feelings. The game against Olympiacos was hard," said Guardiola. 

"Especially for his son, it's tough. He knew Maradona well and his son, it's his grandfather. It's a sad situation for his family, but he's OK."

The Citizens will host Burnley at the Etihad Stadium over the weekend in Premier League.
