Manchester City have celebrated their iconic superstar, Sergio Aguero as they unveil a statue outside the Etihad Stadium to mark the 10-year anniversary of his famous title-winning goal in 2012.

The Argentine striker is a City legend having spent 10 years at the club, scoring as many as 184 Premier League goals in 275 league appearances.

City posted a video on Twitter showing the statue, which depicts Aguero’s pose after scoring the club’s most historic goal of all-time in the 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers.

The Argentine scored the biggest goal in City history when he netted a stoppage time winner against QPR in 2012 to win the Premier League.

And today marks the 10-year anniversary, with City choosing to honour the occasion with the new statue.

Former City players including ex-captain Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure and Joe Hart were among those to pay tribute to the Argentine, the club’s record scorer with 260 goals, in the video.

‘Truthfully, it is a very beautiful thing for me, to see myself 10 years ago is very moving,’ Aguero told Dailymail.

Aguero is now enjoying the game from the sidelines, but in the meantime, City have unveiled a new statue outside the Etihad Stadium.


‘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.’

City said the statue, created by award-winning sculptor Andy Scott, celebrates Aguero’s ‘outstanding contribution to the club’s success, and in particular, his pivotal role in what was arguably one of the greatest moments in sporting history for which he will be eternally remembered by Manchester City fans around the world’.

Aguero, who retired in December due to a heart condition, is scheduled to visit the statue at the Etihad later on Friday, which marks exactly 10 years since his goal snatched the Premier League title from rivals Manchester United on the final day of the season.

‘It’s the moment that I think changed everything,’ City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said.
