Fans have spotted a major error in Man City's post about Sergio Aguero
| Last updated
Manchester City have had plenty of cause for celebration in recent days – and may well celebrate two more trophies and a stunning Treble before the season is out.
But eagle-eyed fans have spotted a mistake in a recent post by the official City account celebrating the career of Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine striker, now 34, left City at the end of the 2020/21 season, joining Barcelona on a free transfer after his contract expired. Sadly, though, Aguero had to retire soon after due to health reasons, after suffering a cardiac arrhythmia.
He will go down as a Premier League legend, however, having plundered 260 goals in 390 appearances for City over 10 seasons, with 184 of those strikes coming in the league – putting Aguero fifth in the all-time list.
On Tuesday (May 23), the official City account posted to say it was "2 years ago today [that Aguero] played his final game for City!" showing footage of the smiling striker bidding farewell to the Etihad Stadium crowd on May 23, 2021 after scoring two goals in a 5-0 demolition of Everton – putting the gloss on another title triumph.
But in actual fact, that was Aguero's final league appearance for City, not the last in all. His final ever game in a sky blue shirt was the 2021 Champions League final on May 29 that year, when Pep Guardiola's side were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea.
Aguero came on as a 77th minute substitute but was unable to help City turn the game around as Kai Havertz's counter-attacking goal proved decisive in Porto.

One fan replied to the post by saying: "I guess the 29th May 2021 doesn’t exist then."
"Am I missing something?" asked another.
A third – a Chelsea fan account – said: "Not so sure about this one lads..."
Another simply added a screengrab of a shellshocked Aguero after the Champions League final with the word: "Sure?" and a fifth said" It was the 29th May 2021 and we all know what happened".
