Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires.
To celebrate and immortalize the star striker, the club intends to erect a statue to live at the Etihad Stadium alongside the ones under construction for Vincent [Kompany] and David [Silva].
“Manchester City will bid a fond and emotional farewell to legendary striker Sergio Aguero when his contract expires this summer.
Treasured by City fans and a global icon of the game, Aguero is one of the most decorated and respected footballers to wear the sky-blue shirt.
He joined City in the summer of 2011, making an immediate impact by scoring twice and creating an assist on his thirty-minute cameo debut in a 4-0 home win over Swansea City. It was a dramatic and impressive start that gave an indication of what was to follow.
One renowned such moment would include his heart-stopping goal in the unforgettable final game of that same season against QPR which secured the Club’s first-ever Premier League title” a statement from the club read
City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “It gives me great pleasure to announce that we will be commissioning an artist to create a statue of Sergio to live at the Etihad Stadium alongside the ones under construction for Vincent [Kompany] and David [Silva].
“We look forward to the opportunity to bid Sergio a fitting farewell at the end of the season.”
