Agueeerrrrrrrrrooooooooooo; The greatest moment in Premier League history continues to give fans goosebumps every time that video is played. A magnificent and super-important goal scored in the 93rd minute of the final game of the season snatched the title from the red side of Manchester and brought it to the blue side of Manchester.
The Etihad went crazy, fans and players alike celebrated knowing very well that for the first time in 44 years the title was coming home. The man responsible for this? Sergio “Kun” Aguero.
That important moment made the Argentine a legend even before his legendary status actually came into play. Almost a decade later, the club has announced that Aguero will be leaving the club when his contract expires at the end of the current season. This announcement has seen teammates, opponents, ex-teammates, managers, pundits and fans have all taken to social media to pay tribute to a true legend of the modern premier league era.
Kun Aguero in Numbers
Since his move from Atletico Madrid in 2011, Aguero has constantly produced goal returns for the Cityzens. He has scored more than 15 goals in all competitions from the 2011/12 season to the 2019/20 season. These phenomenal stats have propelled him to the status of City legend and Premier League legend over time.
Prime Aguero produced memorable moments for the fans and won’t be forgotten. His 15 goals against Chelsea make them his favorite opponent and rubs salt in the wounds after the blues failed to land him before his move to the Etihad.
Overall Kun Aguero’s stats speak for itself:
319 g/a in 384 games
A full decade of service in the Premier League has produced these phenomenal stats that has led to countless trophies on the blue side of Manchester. A total of 13 major trophies have been won on the domestic scene but European glory has been elusive.
League cup x5
Premier league x4
Community shield x3
Fa Cup x1
Sergio Aguero’s final season
The announcement of Kun’s departure has hit the whole premier league family with many fans paying tribute to a true legend.

Injuries have worried him over the last two seasons and as a result, he has managed only 14 appearances in all competitions this season. He has still managed 3 goals this season and he will be looking to add to that tally.
Silverware is still up for grabs with the Premier League, FA Cup, League cup, and UCL all in play between now and the end of May. A good send-off for the Argentine would be the elusive Champions League trophy.
On Aguero’s part, he would love to remain fit going into the run-in and also boosting his chances of securing a contract with another team when he finally leaves.
It is difficult to see him leave the club after 181 goals in the Premier League alone. Every game he plays over the next few months will be treated as his last. Fans are expected back for the final games of the season and the farewell will be more emotional and befitting with the loving fans, both City and opponents, paying tributes to a man whose name can be mentioned with PL legends like Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney, Thierry Henry and Didier Drogba.
The last of the true strikers who turned the league on its head in the 2010s may be on his way out of the league. Hopefully, he gets the send-off he well and truly deserves.
