Sergio Aguero has claimed all TV channels and journalists in England are Manchester United fans in a bizarre rant on his Twitch channel.

The former Manchester City star was watching a clip of his iconic 2012 goal in the 3-2 win over QPR that handed the club their first Premier League title at the expense of their bitter rivals, United.

And the Argentine launched into a massive rant about the support the Red Devils receive in the UK.

"People, you don't know what it's like in England," he claimed.

"In England, everybody, all the journalists, all the TV channels, everybody, they're all Manchester United supporters. Everybody!"

The 33-year-old refrained from taking names of journalists or TV pundits. Former United man Gary Neville is one of Sky Sports top presenters, while Rio Ferdinand provides his expertise on BT Sports. Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, and Owen Hargreaves are also regulars in the studio.

Aguero's former teammate, Micah Richards, is the only former City player working in the media.

The legendary striker was forced to retire from football due to a heart condition during his first year at Barcelona last season. He only played four games for the LaLiga, with his last appearance coming in October, when he was forced off the field after complaining of chest pain and dizziness.

Aguero is hoping to play a role in Argentina's World Cup campaign later this year, and revealed last month he had held talks with Lionel Scaloni and president Claudio Tapia about the proposal.

Scaloni confirmed on Thursday that Aguero has been offered an official role ahead of next winter's tournament.

"I would like him to be close to his teammates, that he brings us any problem or anything that could happen during a World Cup," Scaloni said per Indian Express. "In our coaching staff we have people that are close to the players, but sometimes a person of that magnitude can avoid some situations."
