On this day a decade ago, the Argentine striker scored the biggest goal in the club's history with the final kick of the 2011/12 season against QPR.
It clinched a first league title for 44 years for the Blues, who pipped rivals United on goal difference thanks to Aguero's heroics.
Responsible for the most iconic moment in Premier League history, Aguero's contributions have been celebrated with a statue outside the Etihad Stadium.
It was created by award-winning sculptor Andy Scott, who also made busts of fellow legends Vincent Kompany and David Silva, in his studio in Philadelphia, using thousands of welded pieces of galvanised steel.
Aguero saw the statue for the first time on Friday morning after its transportation and installation outside the ground.
But as has been the case with many statues of legendary players in recent times, many have slated the piece of art and don;t believe it bears resemblance.

🗑 “That’s not him! It’s rubbish!”
🤔 “I’m not having it! If I didn’t tell you who that is you wouldn’t know!”

... Why have they built a statue of Tony Kroos?— Jay Depravo (@JayDepravo) May 13, 2022
Might be me, but damn that does not look like Aguero. Toni Kroos might be happy with his unexpected statue, at a club he never played for, though. 🤣— xHageneeSx 🇱🇺🇬🇧 💪🏼🇺🇦 (@xHageneeSx) May 13, 2022

A £38 million from Atletico Madrid, Aguero went on to become City's record goalscorer with 260 goals and won five Premier League titles, six League cups and one FA Cup during a trophy-laden ten years.
Having had to retire from football due to a heart issue which was spotted while he was playing for Barcelona, the 33-year-old was recently inducted into the Premier League of Hall Fame.
Reflecting on his statue, Aguero told Manchester City's official website: “Truthfully, it is a very beautiful thing for me, to see myself 10 years ago is very moving.
In those 10 years I was able to win a lot of trophies and was able to help the Club become one of the most important in the world.
"I am very grateful to the club for making this statue in recognition of my football career in Manchester. It is something very special.”
