Sergio Aguero is up for the top two PFA Awards of the season, with the winners to be announced this Sunday.
The Argentine striker has enjoyed a brilliant first season in English football and he has been nominated for the Players’ Player of the Year and PFA Young Player of the Year awards – the ultimate accolades for any player with the votes cast by their fellow professionals.
No City player has ever been nominated in both categories before and it’s a measure of how well 28-goal Sergio has settled since his move from Atletico Madrid.
But that’s not all in what has been a record-breaking season for City.
David Silva and Joe Hart have also been nominated for the PFA Players’ Player of the Year, meaning the City trio make up half of the nominees for the main prize.
Silva has had a superb campaign for the Blues, scoring six goals and assisting another 13 so far this season, while Hart, too, has been in brilliant form during 2011/12, keeping 14 clean sheets for the meanest defence in the Premier League.
Scott Parker of Tottenham, Manchester United's Wayne Rooney and Arsenal’s prolific Robin van Persie are the other three players who make up the six nominees.
For the Young Player of the Year award, Sergio will compete with Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Daniel Sturridge, Kyle Walker and Danny Welbeck.
Bale won last year’s Players’ Player of the Year award.
