After ten seasons and numerous trophies, Sergio Aguero is undoubtedly a Manchester City legend. With four Premier League titles (Fifth title on the way) and a possible UEFA Champions League trophy, it is the perfect ending.
The 32-year-old is set to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer. But before he leaves, he has one more record in his sight. Aguero is one goal away from equalling Wayne Rooney’s record of 183 Premier League strikes for a single club.
It has been a tough season for Aguero. He has been left frustrated by a lack of game time in his farewell campaign for City. It was only his fourth start of the season against Crystal Palace. But with City effectively sealing the title, he could end his career with a bang.
As City are within touching distance of a third league crown in four years, Pep Guardiola praised the No.10, “How many times has he done it? What a goal, what a player and what a man (After scoring the opener against Crystal Palace). I’m completely in love with him. He is an absolute top legend, an extraordinary player.”
The Catalan continued, “The people cannot believe it but we’ve missed him. We haven’t been able to use him many times, but maybe we got him back at the right time. He knows he has a special quality.”
Is Sergio Aguero Manchester City’s greatest player of all time?
The records speak for themselves. With 182 Premier League goals to his name, he is Manchester City’s all-time leading goalscorer. And with four games left in the league, the Argentine will be looking to climb up to third in the all-time Premier League top scorers as he sits five goals behind Andrew Cole.
But it does not end there. Aguero scored the most important goal in City’s history as he had scored the winning goal against QPR in stoppage time in the final game of the season, winning them their first top flight English title since 1968.
With a potential Champions League final on the horizon, Sergio Aguero can lead his club to their first ever continental glory and go down as the club’s greatest player of all time.
