Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has received a confidence boost after his father-in-law Diego Maradona paid a family visit.

Maradona, now in charge of Dubai outfit Al Warsi, travelled to England at the weekend to visit his daughter Giannini, Aguero and their young son Benjamin, ahead of City's Europa League round of 32 second-leg clash with Porto on Wednesday.

The former Atletico Madrid man has suffered a recent dip in form, scoring just two goals in his last eight appearances -- including the winner in the first leg against Porto -- so the visit from the Argentine legend could provide him with a morale-boost ahead of his next game.
