The Red Knights’ 2015/16 title success has been somewhat dampened by speculation Olariou, 46, could exit Rashid Stadium this summer.
Aguirre believes the UAE is becoming a haven for the world’s top coaches and would be sad to see either Olaroiu or the Emirates.
“Cosmin is a top, top name. I would encourage him to stay at Ahli, of course,” said the 57-year-old former Atletico Madrid and Mexico boss.
“These two guys (Olaroiu and Dalic), sitting between these two guys is, for me, an honour. I’m really proud to be here alongside them and be among these big names in this league.
For me that’s a trophy.
“Both of them. They have to (stay).
“There are big names coming here. (Al Jazira coach Henk) Ten Cate also is a big, big name. It’s good for the league.”
