Sharjah 24- Azad Khalil:
Manchester City on Friday pulled the curtain down on a statue dedicated to Argentine striker Sergio Aguero, the English club’s all-time leading goalscorer.
It marks the third year in the club’s history that they have won the league, with Aguero scoring at half-time.
The statue is located on the east side of the “Etihad” stage, joins the statues of the company and Silva, and was executed by plastic artist Andy Scott using thousands of galvanized steel pieces.
“Aguero’s permanent statue commemorates his outstanding contribution to the club’s success, in particular his key role in one of the greatest moments in the history of the sport and will forever be remembered by Manchester City fans around the world.” The club said in a statement.
Ten years ago, Manchester City won the English Premier League after a long wait of almost 40 years.
Manchester City had to score two goals to officially crown themselves in the Premier League during the Queens Park Rangers match injury, while Manchester United waited until the end of the match at the “Etihad” ground.
But Dzeko and Aguero had a different opinion and scored two goals in stoppage time, so the title went to the “citizens” treasury by a goal difference.
