Manchester City Immortalized Aguero With a Statue

Waves of light blue crashed around the stands of the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City fans bounced up and down, colliding into one another in their delirium.

Over in Sunderland, Manchester United  fans stood shell-shocked despite their team’s 1-0 victory, frozen by one of the most dramatic conclusions that the English Premier League  has ever witnessed, as their title hopes evaporated.
This was a finale no Hollywood script writer would have imagined credible.
With City trailing 2-1 in the 92nd minute but requiring victory over Queens Park Rangers to win its first Premier League title in 44 years, Edin Dzeko equalized.
Then, at 93:20 in the last minute of the game, a composed Sergio Aguero weaved his way through the frantic QPR defense and fired in a winner to secure victory and clinch the 2011/12 Premier League. Cue bedlam.
“Truthfully, it is a very beautiful thing for me, to see myself 10 years ago is very moving,” Aguero said of the statute, which was unveiled on Friday as part of a series of events and activities organized by Manchester City to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its remarkable Premier League title win.
