Sergio Aguero To Depart Manchester City at End of 2020-21 Season – Sport Grill
Manchester City have announced that Sergio Aguero will leave the club at the end of the 2020-2021 season when his contract expires.
Aguero announced his departure in a special letter posted on Twitter, beginning with; “When a cycle ends, many sensations arise. A tremendous sense of satisfaction and pride remains in me to have played for Manchester City for ten full seasons – unusual for a professional player these days.
Aguero went on to reflect on his major achievements with City and breaking records like the Premier League’s all-time foreign scorer record holder with 181 goals so far, although the Argentine has vowed to ‘continue to give it your all ” throughout the rest of the season.
As for his future, Aguero concluded his letter by saying; “… A new stage with new challenges is about to begin, and I am fully prepared to face it with the same passion and professionalism that I have always vowed to continue to compete at the highest level.
Man City president Khaldoon Al Mubarak paid tribute by confirming that he had commissioned a statue of Aguero alongside those already in the works for his former teammates David Silva and Vincent Kompany.
A permanent mosaic will be designed and installed at the City Football Academy to further mark its heritage in the city’s folklore.
Al Mubarak also commented on Aguero’s exit, saying; “Sergio’s contribution to Manchester City over the past 10 years cannot be overstated.
“His legend will be indelibly etched in the memory of all who love the club and maybe even those who just love football.”
Al Mubarak also reiterated that now is not the time to “ give farewell words and speeches ” as the club go for a historic quadruple in the next two months.
Aguero’s final home game will take place on Sunday 23 May 2021 as host City of Everton at the Etihad Stadium, with thousands of supporters expected if the UK government’s easing of restrictions is lifted enough to allow the spectators to go to football stadiums.
