Manchester City unveiled a statue of the striker on the 10th anniversary of his Premier League title-winning goal
As per the recent news, it claims that for the 10th anniversary of his title-winning goal against QPR, Manchester City installed a statue of Sergio Aguero outside the Etihad Stadium. Aguero is grateful to Manchester City for the monument.
Aguero’s stoppage-time goal completed City’s 3-2 comeback on the final day of the season, lifting the trophy from the grasp of arch rivals Manchester United after a 44-year wait. The statue was sculpted by award-winning sculptor Andy Scott and was built with thousands of welded pieces of galvanized steel to complete the trinity of sculptures honoring the club’s defining era.
Aguero expresses his feelings about this statue, saying that it is a really lovely thing for him, and seeing himself 10 years ago is quite meaningful. The striker’s statue joins those of his former teammates David Silva and Vincent Kompany, who were put on the East Side of the Etihad last year.
Aguero went on to say that over those ten years, he was able to win numerous titles and help the club become one of the most significant in the world. He is extremely grateful to the club for erecting this statue in honor of his football career in Manchester. He shows his appreciation for this unique opportunity.
The Argentine strike came with 93 minutes and 20 seconds remaining as City completed a dramatic comeback to win 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium and take the Premier League title away from rivals Manchester United. Over 10 years, Aguero scored 257 goals in 384 games for City, becoming the club’s all-time leading scorer, winning five Premier League crowns, an FA Cup, and six League Cups.
