Emerging from darkness into first light at day-break this morning and revealed to fans around the world with a specially commissioned video to mark the occasion, the statue of Sergio Aguero completes a trinity alongside Vincent Kompany and David Silva, commemorating a defining era for the Club.
Situated on the east side of the Etihad Stadium, the large-scale statue of Aguero was created by award-winning sculptor Andy Scott and has been constructed using thousands of welded pieces of galvanised steel. At night, Aguero’s statue and those of Kompany and Silva, will be specially illuminated with blue tinted lighting.
Scott, who is one of the most respected sculptors of his generation and is known for his large-scale figurative pieces, created the statue of Aguero entirely from his studio in Philadelphia, before it was transported to Manchester earlier this month by Etihad Cargo.
Now installed at the Etihad Stadium, the permanent statue of Aguero celebrates his outstanding contribution to the Club’s success, and in particular, his pivotal role in what was arguably one of the greatest moments in sporting history for which he will be eternally remembered by Manchester City fans around the world.
Aguero, who was recently inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame, won fifteen major trophies during his time at the Club, including five Premier League titles, one FA Cup and a record six League Cups.
