Man City Unveil Agüero Statue Outside Etihad Stadium

Manchester City have unveiled a statue of club legend Sergio Agüero on the tenth anniversary of his famous title-winning goal against Queens Park Rangers.

Aguero’s last-minute winner against QPR in his debut season that secured a first Premier League title in 44 years is forever etched in the memories of many City fans and the club have immortalised the moment in bronze outside the Etihad Stadium alongside fellow club legends Vincent Kompany and David Silva.

The former Argentina international spent 10 years in the blue half of Manchester, having joined from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2011 and left with five Premier League titles, one FA Cup and six League Cups.

Agüero is also Manchester City's all-time top scorer with 260 goals in 390 appearances.

City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has told the club’s official website of the legacy left behind by a modern day superstar: “Sergio Aguero’s contribution to Manchester City in a defining era for the club cannot be overstated. He is without doubt one of the greatest players that has 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 recognised with a statue of his own, in celebration and honour of his accomplishments in one of the most important chapters of Manchester City’s rich and long history.”

Agüero added: “Truthfully, it is a very beautiful thing for me, to see myself 10 years ago is very moving.

“In those 10 years I was able to win a lot of trophies and was able to help the club become one of the most important in the world.

“I am very grateful to the club for making this statue in recognition of my football career in Manchester. It is something very special.”
