Commemorating the tenth anniversary of his iconic ’93:20’ Premier League title-winning goal, Manchester City have unveiled a permanent statue of Sergio Aguero at the Etihad Stadium.

Few moments in Premier League history live up to the moment Sergio Aguero shimmied in the box before slamming the ball home in the 94th minute past a despairing Paddy Kenny to send the crowd at the Etihad in to raptures. Matin Tyler’s iconic commentary… Aguero’s shirt-off celebration… a first Premier League title in the most dramatic fashion conceivable. It was the only moment that could be used for a statue of Aguero, fittingly revealed on the tenth Anniversary of that goal.

Aguero, who was recently inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame, won fifteen major trophies during his time at the Club, including five Premier League titles, one FA Cup and a record six League Cups. He is one of the Premier League's greatest players of all time, and his statue completes a trinity alongside Vincent Kompany and David Silva, commemorating a defining era for the Club. Situated on the east side of the Etihad Stadium, the large-scale statue of Aguero was created by award-winning sculptor Andy Scott and has been constructed using thousands of welded pieces of galvanised steel. At night, Aguero’s statue and those of Kompany and Silva, will be specially illuminated with blue tinted lighting.

Commenting on the statue of Sergio Aguero following its installation at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City’s Chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “Sergio Aguero’s contribution to Manchester City in a defining era for the Club cannot be overstated. He is without doubt one of the greatest players that has ever played the game.

When our fans think of Sergio, they are immediately drawn to the iconic moment of 93:20 and the goal that secured the Club’s first league title in 44 years, but as his record of 260 goals for the Club demonstrates, his legacy and impact at Manchester City go far beyond that

It is only fitting that Sergio has been recognised with a statue of his own, in celebration and honour of his accomplishments in one of the most important chapters of Manchester City’s rich and long history.

Reflecting on his statue, Sergio Aguero said: “Truthfully, it is a very beautiful thing for me, to see myself 10 years ago is very moving.

In those 10 years I was able to win a lot of trophies and was able to help the Club become one of the most important in the world.

I am very grateful to the Club for making this statue in recognition of my football career in Manchester. It is something very special.

The statue follows the release of the special edition ’93:20’ prematch shirt and boots, with City rightly going all out to mark the occasion.
