World News

English giants Manchester City have unveiled a statue in honour of club legend Sergio Aguero at the Etihad Stadium.

The Citizens have marked the 10-year anniversary of their famous first Premier League title win in the 2011/12 campaign with a special statue commemorating Aguero's iconic 93:20 moment.

The sculpture of the Argentine completes a trinity of monuments outside City's stadium, joining Vincent Kompany and David Silva's statues to symbolise a defining period in the club's history.

Reflecting on his statue via the club's official website, the team's record goalscorer with 184 strikes to his name said: "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, who created the figure entirely in his studio in Philadelphia, 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."
