At the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City unveiled a statue to honor Sergio Aguero, who scored in the fourth minute of injury time during the final game of 2011-12.

That goal helped Manchester City end their 44 years wait of the title. Aguero was back at the Etihad Stadium on Friday as City celebrated the milestone by unveiling a statue in his honor.

Sergio Aguero shared his feelings on the statue he said on Manchester City website: “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.”

Manchester City’s Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “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 has ever played the game.

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 recognised with a statue of his own, in celebration and honour of his accomplishments in one of the most important chapters of Manchester City’s rich and long history.”
