Man City unveiled a striker of Sergio Aguero on the 10th anniversary of his title-winning goal against QPR. Aguero scored in stoppage time to complete a 3-2 comeback to clinch the title from the clutches of their rivals Manchester United. It was their first title in 44 years. Aguero’s statue joins those of Vincent Kompany and David Silva that were installed last year outside the Etihad.
“It’s fantastic! I’m very happy about it, it’s special. That moment changed my life, the club, everything. The best moment in my life. It will always be in my heart,” Man City striker Sergio Aguero said. “We don’t know what would have happened if we lost the Premier League that year. That year changed everything because the next years we started winning more titles. 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.”
“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 have ever played the game,” Manchester City’s chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said. “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.”
