Man City unveil Aguero statue 10 years on from title-winning goal

Manchester City have unveiled a statue of Sergio Aguero outside the Etihad Stadium on the 10th anniversary of his title-winning goal against QPR.

Aguero's stoppage-time goal completed a 3-2 comeback for City on the final day of the season to clinch the title from the clutches of their bitter rivals Manchester United after a 44-year wait to be league champions.

The statue of the striker joins those of his former team-mates David Silva and Vincent Kompany that were installed last year on the East Side of the Etihad.

It was created by award-winning sculptor Andy Scott and has been constructed using thousands of welded pieces of galvanised steel to complete the trinity of statues commemorating a defining era for the club.

"Truthfully, it is a very beautiful thing for me, to see myself 10 years ago is very moving," said Aguero, reflecting on his statue.
