Manchester City will mark the 10th anniversary of their first Premier League triumph by unveiling a statue of Sergio Agüero, the club’s record goalscorer whose last-minute strike claimed the 2011-12 title.
Agüero was in his first season at City when his finish on 93 minutes and 20 seconds beat Queens Park Rangers 3-2 and edged out Manchester United for the championship on goal difference.
The statue, made by the sculptor Andy Scott, will be presented at the Etihad Stadium on 13 May – the same date as the QPR win – to mark what was City’s first domestic crown in 44 years.
The former Argentina forward, who left City in the summer and has now retired, will attend alongside former teammates and fans can attend – by ballot – a celebration at the nearby Mayfield Depot.
Agüero’s statue will join those of Vincent Kompany and David Silva, two of the other key players in the club’s current era of glittering success under the ownership of Sheikh Mansour.
