Aguero was no doubt the greatest player to have worn the sky-blue jersey since its inception and one of the greatest to have graced the EPL. Aguero played actively with the club for 10 years from 2011-to 2021 joining the English club from Atlético Madrid. He has since then made 390 appearances for the club and has scored 260 goals and 73 assists, winning 15 trophies.
Sergio Aguero who retired last year from active football was commemorated by the club remembering his last-winner goal against Queens Park Rangers in the 3-2 winner that helped City clinch their first title ever.
The Argentine who was recently installed in the Premier League hall of fame joins the statues of Vincent Kompany and David Silva, commemorating a defining era for the club.
On the statue being unveiled, City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said:
“Sergio Aguero’s contribution to Manchester City in a defining era for the club cannot be overstated. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest players who have ever played the game.
“When our fans think of Sergio, they are immediately drawn to the iconic moment of 93:20 and the goal that secured the Club’s first league title in 44 years, but as his record of 260 goals for the Club demonstrates, his legacy and impact at Manchester City go far beyond that.
“It is only fitting that Sergio has been recognized with a statue of his own, in celebration and honor of his accomplishments in one of the most important chapters of Manchester City’s rich and long history.”
