“It’s funny that Aguero asked to unveil a statue of Toni Kroos.”
“Have you seen the statue of Toni Kroos in front of the Etihad? Sergio Aguero must be incredibly jealous after everything he has done for the Citizens.”
The feedback from Manchester City fans on the statue of club legend Sergio Aguero (33) unveiled in front of the City Stadium on Friday is clear: failed, he looks more like Toni Kroos (32), who has now proven he has nothing to do with Manchester City.
Aguero, the midfield star with 41 goals in 101 games for Argentina, had played for City from 2011 to 2021 before moving to FC Barcelona, where he announced his retirement on 15 December last year.
He suffers from severe cardiac arrhythmia and collapsed on the pitch in a game against Alaves in October 2021.
“Nobody at the City deserves a statue more than Aguero, but this one doesn’t look anything like him,” complained a Citizens fan.
Aguero himself, who has scored a total of 260 goals and 73 assists in 390 games for Manchester City, apparently took Andy Scott’s artistically bold sculpture with humor. He patiently posed for photographers with his wife Sofia and signed autographs for fans.
