Sergio Aguero has revealed his stupidest purchase after signing big contract with Manchester City

Sergio Aguero has revealed his stupidest purchase after signing big contract with Manchester City

Aguero revealed all.

Sergio Aguero has described one of his worst purchases during his time as a Manchester City player.

The City and Argentina icon spent 10 years in Manchester, winning five Premier League titles and becoming the club's all time record goalscorer.

Aguero also held the record for the most Premier League goals scored for a single club, although Harry Kane overtook him while playing for Tottenham in 2022.

The striker went down in City folklore in 2012 when he scored the iconic Premier League-winning goal against QPR, and went on to successfully adapt his game to the demands of Pep Guardiola's management.

As a result of his performances at City, Aguero was one of the highest-earning players in the Premier League throughout his time at the club - meaning he had plenty of luxuries he could spend money on.

The Argentinian striker loves collecting cars, and owned an incredible array of vehicles over the course of his football career.

But speaking to Argentinian TV station Santo Sabado in 2021, Aguero revealed that he had no idea why he bought one car in particular.

He bluntly stated (quotes via Marca): "I don't know why the f*** I bought a Lamborghini.

"It must have done about 1,200km (745 miiles) in six years - I've barely used it.

"I've been thinking for two years about what the f*** I bought that car for. Now, the only thing it does is get cold from the rain. It has cobwebs and everything."

Although Aguero did not disclose how much the car cost or when exactly he bought it, 2020 Lamborghini Aventadors - the car Marca report that he owned - currently retail at upwards of £380,000 brand new.

The Argentinian joined Barcelona from City in the summer of 2021, but suffered chest discomfort during a La Liga fixture against Alaves months later.

He was subsequently diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia, which forced him to retire from football.

Since retirement, Aguero has been heavily involved with his eSports team, KRU Esports, which he founded in 2020. Last year, Lionel Messi joined him as a co-owner.

He has also taken part in the Kings League, a seven-a-side football league created by former Barcelona team-mate Gerard Pique. But a fixture in June didn't quite go to plan for the 35-year-old when he had a penalty saved by Real Madrid icon Iker Casillas.
