Footage has emerged of Sergio Aguero giving away his brand-new car to a grateful Manchester City kit man on his last day at City's training ground.
Before he departed the Etihad after 10 success-filled seasons where he proved to be one of the best strikers in the world, Aguero gave around 60 City backroom staff an engraved Hublot or Tag Heuer watch to express his thanks for all their hard work.
Aguero also raffled off his Range Rover Evoque - and made a sizable donation to the club's end of season cash fund, which goes towards buying Christmas presents for support staff. However it was the video of Aguero handing over the car - complete with a warm, parting hug - that tugged on the heartstrings of City supporters.

As Aguero drove in, parked and was getting ready to hand over the keys, before the kit man had some final words of friendly advice: "Don't forget your stuff inside!" A pro to the end.
"Your car, puto," responded a grinning Aguero (presumably using that as a term of warm endearment) before the two embraced.
I've always loved aguero and this tops it off :heart: https://t.co/rw3GyyYrVr

Aguero was announced this week as a Barcelona player after 10 seasons and a club-record 260 goals for Manchester City.
He did not quite the fairytale farewell on the pitch, as he came off the bench in City's 1-0 Champions League final defeat to Chelsea. But it's clear how much he loves the club and departed with five Premier League titles, an FA Cup and six League Cups among his trophy haul.
But minus, of course, one top-of-the-line Range Rover which he handed over to a member of the support staff.
Sergio Aguero left City with a bang:
⏱watches for 60+ staff
:tickets:raffled off his car
:moneybag:made a big donation to the regular end-of-season cash collection

Judging from the reaction, it seems Aguero will be missed off the pitch just as much as he's missed on it at MCFC.
