Ten things you didn't know about Sergio Aguero

Sergio Aguero celebrates scoring against Chelsea

Sergio Aguero smashed another record on Saturday, producing the fastest five-goal haul the Premier League has ever seen.

Kun is used to making history and defying the impossible as we’re all aware – but here are some facts you may not have known about our Argentine ace…

At 15 years and 35 days old, he became the youngest player to play in the Argentine First Division, breaking the record previously held by Diego Maradona.

He was married to Giannina Maradona (Diego’s daughter) and together, they have a son, Benjamin. Surely, he is destined for great things… (No pressure!)

In his autobiography, Born To Rise, Aguero describes Lionel Messi as “like a brother” to him.

He has six siblings but is the only one to have taken his mother’s surname, rather than his father’s.

In his debut season at City, he became the first player since Francis Lee to score 30 goals in a season in the top flight.

 He helped Argentina to an Olympic gold medal in 2008, and has won the FIFA Under-20 World Cup twice. He made his senior debut for Argentina in 2006, replacing Carlos Tevez on 65 minutes.

 His nickname ‘Kun’ derives from a cartoon he watched as a youngster. His grandparents gave him the moniker, claiming he resembled the mischievous character ‘Kum Kum’.

 Aguero has a tattoo on the inside of his arm, inscribed in Tengwar - a form of writing invented by J R R Tolkien in The Lord of the Rings. Roughly translated, it reads: Kun Aguero. He also has a tattoo marking his son’s name and date of birth.

 Before a game, as part of a pre-match ritual, Kun always rubs his hands together as he walks down the tunnel and out onto the pitch.

 He once featured in a music video with Los Leales, singing along to their ‘hit’, entitled El Kun Aguero.
