Sergio Aguero is in the mix to be labelled Manchester City‘s greatest ever player.
The Argentine – who sadly had to retire from football recently due to a heart condition – was signed by the club in the summer of 2011 from Atletico Madrid.
Aguero arrived with a glowing reputation and he instantly lived up to it, scoring twice on his debut in a 4-0 victory over Swansea City.
The little genius went on to score 260 times for City over the course of his 10 years in Manchester, including 184 in 275 Premier League outings – the most by a foreign player in the division’s history.
Aguero’s most famous strike in the sky blue jersey is, of course, his stoppage-time winner against Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the 2011/12 season.
It was the goal that won City their first ever Premier League title and it’s without question the greatest moment in English football this century.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the famous 93:20 goal on Friday, the Citizens unveiled a statue of Aguero outside the Etihad.

The Argentine joins installations of his former teammates David Silva and Vincent Kompany on the East Side of the stadium.
However, there’s a slight issue with the Aguero statue created by award-winning sculptor Andy Scott.
What is it? Oh nothing much, just the fact that it looks far more like Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos than the City legend.
So much so that even the Germany international himself tweeted about it…

The resemblance to Kroos is uncanny, isn’t it?
If Real Madrid are drawn against City in the Champions League once again next season, you can bet that Kroos will be uploading a picture of himself next to his – sorry, Aguero’s – statue.
