Compilation Of Sergio Aguero's 2011/12 Season Shows How Good He Was

Sergio Aguero's debut season for Manchester City proves that players coming from abroad don't always need time to fit into life in England.

When Aguero leaves City at the end of the season, it will wrap up an incredible 10 years at the Etihad Stadium, where the forward helped turn the club into league's top side.

In the 2010/11 season, Roberto Mancini led City to a third place finish, nine points behind champions Manchester United, their highest finish in the league since 1977 and qualification into the Champions League for the first time.

Aguero then arrived that summer for a club record £35 million, with Samir Nasri also signed that summer, and set about helping City winning their first league title.

Of course the famous moment where his goal against QPR sealed the title is his most famous contribution but a highlights video of his season shows just how much more he did.

It took the former Atletico Madrid striker just nine minutes of football to break his duck in the north west, as he made his debut on August 15th 2011.

Just under 10 minutes after coming on as a 59th minute substitute, Aguero scored against Swansea City in a 4-0 win.

Aguero also grabbed a second goal and provided an assist in a sign of things to come, as he scored 23 goals that season in the league.

Despite the fact that his famous goal cost Manchester United the title in injury time that season, former United centre back Rio Ferdinand paid tribute to the striker this week.

""Agueroooooooooooo," the former Leeds United defender wrote on Instagram.

"This name, this goal, this moment still hits me at times when I least expect it like a bolt out the blue!

"Our closest rivals just across the city, snatching the PL title from out of our hands - bearing in mind our game had just finished and we had won our game...

"What was the score in City's game...they need a goal with seconds to go....surely we have won...I think we have done it.....then....Agueroooooooooo.

"Absolutely floored, distraught, devastated....a whole season demolished in the final seconds of the last game.

"What I will say is that as much as I hated the outcome I never hated (or disliked) Sergio for his moment - like I thought I would.

"Why?? I think how humble & chilled he seems plays a big part but as much or more is how much I respect him as a footballer.

"He is one of the hardest strikers I have ever marked. So elusive, so quick, strong, two feet capable of hitting the ball cleanly with, great movement and a clear belief that he will score that seeps out through his paws! (sic)"
