The Tweet that aired Sunday morning read, “Guardiola has never wanted my brother since arriving in City.”
When asked why he had the post removed by various social media followers, he said, ‘Lots of toxic people, too many.’
However, he insisted he was glad people saw his Tweet before he deleted it and insisted that he “write it again.”
He said, ‘Perfect, I’m glad people saw it. And I’ll write it again if I want. ‘

Agüero came to City from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and made his last appearance for the club in their Champions League defeat on Saturday.
The 32-year-old striker, who came off the bench in the second half but couldn’t help his teammates bounce back after Kai Havertz’s goal, will leave City this summer as the club’s all-time top scorer with 260 goals.
Aguero has enjoyed ten years of success at City, claiming five Premier League titles – three under Guardiola – but the Champions League is the one trophy that has always eluded him.
A move to Barcelona now beckons with a tearful Guardiola confirming in the final game of the Premier League season that Aguero is ‘close’ to moving to Camp Nou and ‘irreplaceable’ for City.
The Spanish manager said: ‘He is a special person. He’s so nice.
“He helped me a lot… We can’t replace him, we can’t. There are many players in this club – Joe Hart, David Silva [are others] – who helped us to be this club. We have his legacy. He showed his quality in 30 minutes. ‘
Despite what Agüero’s brother claimed on social media, Guardiola has always praised the striker and on numerous occasions their close bond.
Sergio is irreplaceable. I could say in terms of numbers it could be expendable, but it’s not easy. When you see 360 games and more than 250 goals, that’s the number of titles,” he said earlier.

‘He’s a legend, the best forward I’ve ever had at this club … but he’s irreplaceable in mind to our fans, our people and the players who played alongside him or the manager who worked with him.
‘A fantastic person and person. I think if his mind is still aggressive like him, he can keep his career going for two, three, four or five more years.
‘I still think he has some interesting goals for us to score this season. Fortunately, he has only been out for one season. We have had a lot of success, but we missed it at times.
‘It’s so hard to have such a special quality – the purposefulness, the quality, it’s sharp.
“ Especially when he’s angry and upset at times, he makes energy in his legs and can get close to the box to make these 5-10m runs …
When I took over the club, he was one of the guys who helped. Not just him – we had Joe Hart, Pablo [Zabaleta], Vincent [Kompany] and David [Silva].
‘A lot of players helped this team take a step forward and of course he was one of them.
‘When he came here the club was on one level and he helped bring the club to the next level and that’s why all people and fans are grateful.’
