On the tenth anniversary of the Club’s first Premier League triumph and the legendary ’93:20′ moment, Manchester City Football Club proudly presented a permanent statue of club great Sergio Aguero at Etihad Stadium. Today marks 10 years since his title-winning goal against QPR in the final match of that season.
Sergio Aguero’s statue, alongside those of Vincent Kompany and David Silva, completes a trinity honouring the Club’s defining era. The large-scale statue of Aguero, which stands on the east side of the Etihad Stadium, was sculpted by award-winning artist Andy Scott and is made up of thousands of welded galvanised steel parts. The statues of Aguero, Kompany, and Silva will be specifically lighted with blue coloured lighting at night.

Reflecting on his statue, Sergio Aguero said it is a beautiful thing for him to see himself 10 years ago and it is quite moving, in those 10 years he was able to contribute to winning many trophies and help in making City one of the most important clubs in the world. He also said that he is grateful to the club for making this statue in recognition of his football career in Manchester.
Aguero, who was just elected into the Premier League Hall of Fame, has a total of fifteen major trophies to his name, including five Premier League crowns, one FA Cup, and a club-record six League Cups.
