Sergio Aguero has announced he will be leaving Manchester City at the end of the current campaign, calling time on a glittering career at the Etihad that has delivered a wealth of success.
Aguero will depart as the club’s all-time record goalscorer and has been an unmistakable figure at City, becoming the most successful side in English football over the past decade, winning four league titles and setting all forms of goalscoring records.
The Argentina international is the highest-scoring foreign player in Premier League history and ranks fourth overall, whilst he remains responsible for the most dramatic goal the division has ever witnessed.
Aguero’s stoppage-time winner on the final day of the season against Queens Park Rangers in 2011/12 ended a 44-year wait for league title success, announcing a seismic shift in City’s status and blasting the club into a new era.
It marked the end of the club’s association with failings and cemented Aguero’s place in folklore, with Martin Tyler shrieking on commentary that ‘you’ll never see anything like this ever again’ as the forward snatched away the title from arch-rivals Manchester United.
He was right, Aguero’s golden goal remains the most iconic moment the Premier League has ever seen.
