Manchester City have debuted and honored one of our all time greats, in Sergio Aguero, as they revealed a statue at the Etihad Stadium.
From the official statement:
Manchester City Football Club are today delighted to unveil a permanent statue of Club legend Sergio Aguero at Etihad Stadium on the tenth anniversary of the Club’s first Premier League title and the iconic ‘93:20’ moment.
Emerging from darkness into first light at day-break this morning and revealed to fans around the world with a specially commissioned video to mark the occasion, the statue of Sergio Aguero completes a trinity alongside Vincent Kompany and David Silva, commemorating a defining era for the Club.
A truly great day as the club celebrates the famous and wonderful 93:20 moment that earned City a Premier League title now 10 years ago!
Aguero even spoke and was more than appreciative:
“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.”
Sculptor, Andy Scott, added: “It has been an honour to work on a project that means so much to Manchester City fans around the world in celebration of such an important player in the life of this football club.
I was under no illusions about how important this was to the Club, to the fans, to Sergio himself and I hope that this statue brings joy and happiness to all who see it.”
Congratulations Aguero and well done Man City!
