Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero says the new statue of him to mark the 10th anniversary of the club’s first Premier League title captures the “best moment of my life”.
The statue, unveiled at the Etihad Stadium, celebrates Aguero’s goal in the fourth minute of injury time in the final game of the 2011-12 season.
The goal won City their first Premier League title of the Abu Dhabi era.
Created by sculptor Andy Scott, the galvanised steel statue of Argentine Aguero was revealed yesterday and joins statues of fellow City legends Vincent Kompany and David Silva on the east side of the Etihad.
City chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak said Aguero’s goal against QPR in 2012, which denied rivals Manchester United from winning the title, “changed everything”.
