Four years ago today… Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero arrives at the Etihad

Samir Nasri & Sergio Aguero with Premier League Trophy

On July 28th 2011, Sergio Aguero signed for Manchester City from Atletico Madrid for £38 million and it’s proven to be money very well spent indeed.

Of all the big-name arrivals at the Etihad Stadium in recent years, no one has quite lived up to the billing in the way Sergio Aguero has.

Arriving at the club on this very day back in 2011, the Argentine was something else – a player approaching the peak of his powers and hungry to talk about trophies rather than paychecks.

Speaking on the official Manchester City website in quotes carried by the BBC, Aguero said, upon his arrival:

"I think we are a team that in future will be fighting every year to win major trophies.”

They have certainly done that, with two Premier League titles, a League Cup win and a Charity Shield in the bag with Aguero front and centre for all of the action.

Despite nursing numerous injuries throughout his time with the club, the Argentine’s record speaks for itself.

In 162 outings for the Sky Blues, he has managed 107 goals, with so many of these coming in crucial moments for City.

Few will ever forget the composure he showed to snatch the Premier League title back from Manchester United in 2012 while his match-winning hat-trick against Bayern Munich last term was a bright spot in an otherwise bleak season.

Golden Boot winner with 26 top-flight goals last season, it’s hard to believe that Aguero is only 27.

Here’s to four more years of the Argentine doing was he does best... AGUEROOOOOO!!!!!!
