Manchester City’s record-breaking top scorer Sergio Aguero will leave the club at the end of the season. The club has announced that after his contract lapses, the player will leave.
The 32-year-old Argentine, viewed as one of the greatest players in Premier League history, joined Mancity from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and proceeded to win four Premier League titles, one FA Cup and five League Cups.
Sergio Aguero will consistently be associated with scoring a sensational injury time winner against QPR in 2012 to get Manchester City’s first class league title in quite a while.
Aguero is Machester City’s untouched top scorer with 257 goals in 384 appearances yet has battled with injuries as of late, hence has hindered his goal scoring capacities. He has however shown up this season, scoring only one goal, as his team chase for an exceptional fourfold.
In the interim, the player posted this on social media:
“When a cycle comes to an end, many sensations arise,” Aguero wrote in a social media post. A huge sense of satisfaction and pride remains in me for having played with Manchester City for a whole 10 seasons — unusual for a professional player this day and age. With the guidance of the owners and the contributions of many players, we earned a place among the greatest of the world,” he added.
Manchester City has expressed that the fan’s #1 Aguero will be honoured with a statue outside the Eithad Stadium for his role played in changing the club into probably the best team in European football.
As per Manchester City’s chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak, Aguero’s legacy will be permanently scratched into the memories of every individual who cherishes the club and those who essentially love football.
Aguero is the most elevated overseas goalscorer in Premier League history (with 181 goals) and is probably going to pull in a lot of consideration around Europe’s top clubs when he becomes a free agent.
Manchester City is planning to mark his departure in the last game of the season when it is hoped thousands of fans will be allowed back into the stadium as lockdown restrictions ease across England.
