Legends salute record-breaking Aguero
A host of footballing greats have been quick to laud the incredible achievements of Sergio Aguero after the City striker’s latest twin record-breaking landmarks.
In the course of our superb 6-1 Premier League win at Aston Villa on Sunday, Aguero became both the Premier League’s leading all-time overseas scorer and leading scorer of hat-tricks.
Aguero’s latest exploits saw him eclipse two more league legends as our all-time leading goalscorer posted yet another remarkable chapter in his City career.
His latest league treble took Kun to 12 – one clear of former record holder Alan Shearer – while Aguero now has 177 Premier League goals, two clear of former overseas record holder Thierry Henry.
And not surprisingly, a plethora of former colleagues and fellow professionals have paid their own special tributes to our master marksman.
Leading the way was former City favourite Micah Richards, who revealed to the BBC, that how he hadn’t realised quote how good Aguero was until he played alongside him.
“I did not realise just how good Sergio really was until he played his first game for us. He came alive in matches, and everything about him was different,” Richards recalled.
“I actually set up his first goal for City, on his debut against Swansea, with a cross that he turned in at the far post – and he has obviously scored quite a few more like that since!
“What is so special about Sergio? Where do you start? Everything about him is world class.
“His movement when City are attacking is just incredible. His game is not just about running off defenders, because he can come deeper to get the ball too. Either way, he manages to find space when there should not be any there.
