Sergio Aguero's Leaving Gifts For Manchester City Staff Show How Classy He Is

Sergio Aguero left Manchester City for Barcelona last summer, but before heading out of the door at the Etihad Stadium the striker gave presents to the club's staff.

Aguero sadly had to end his career on Wednesday, having been out of action since October due to suffering issues with his heart during a game for Barcelona.

The 33-year-old managed just five games for the Catalan giants but before that he had 10 incredible years at City, winning five Premier League titles.

Before he departed City though, Aguero bought members of staff either Hublot or Tag Heuer watches, engraved with the classy message of 'Gracias - Kun Aguero!,' as per The Athletic.

The prices of the Tag Heuer are between £1000 and £1650, with the Hublots costing around £8000, with Aguero buying around 60 of them for first-team staff.

He then entered everyone into a raffle to win his recently purchased Range Rover Evoque - which was won by an incredibly grateful kitman.

The former Independiente striker is said to have been very happy with the winner, as it was someone he got on with and really appreciated the hard work of the whole team.

One final gesture saw Aguero make a sizeable donation to the end of season cash fund, which goes towards buying Christmas presents for support staff.

Aguero had an emotional goodbye to the fans at the Etihad Stadium, following the final league game of last season in which he collected the final medal of his club career.

Pep Guardiola broke down in tears as he gave an emotional speech about the striker, "He's a special person for all of us," Guardiola said after the game.

"He's so nice. He helped me a lot, he's so good. We cannot replace him, we cannot."

Unfortunately for the manager, and the player, his time at the club ended with his performance as a substitute as they lost the Champions League final to Chelsea.

They will always have the incredible memories of all his goals, and the staff also have some amazing momentos too.
