The statue of Manchester City legend Sergio Kun Aguero has been unveiled at the Etihad Stadium’s entrance.
The Argentine’s monument was inaugurated on May 13th, 2022, and depicted Aguero celebrating his goal in the 93rd minute of a Premier League match against Queens Park Rangers in the 2010/11 season, which gave the Cityzens their first league title in 44 years. City beat Manchester United on goal difference to win the title.
In an interview with Sky Sports News, Aguero emphasized his joy, claiming that winning the Premier League in 2011 changed everything about the club’s future.
It’s amazing! It makes me really pleased; it’s unique. That moment changed everything in my life, including the club. The happiest time of my life. It will always have a special place in my heart. What would have occurred if we had not won the Premier League that year? That year altered everything because we began to win more trophies in subsequent years.
Aguero is Manchester City’s all-time leading goalscorer, scoring 257 goals in 384 appearances to become the club’s all-time leading goalscorer, winning five Premier League titles, an FA Cup, and six League Cups in his illustrious career. His statue, which stands alongside Vincent Kompany and David Silva, completes a trinity.
