Sergio Agüero scores the 184th all-time high in Man City’s last game
Nine years after his goal won the first Premier League title in Manchester City, Sergio Agüero showed more magic on the final day.
Agüero came off the bench and scored twice against Everton on Sunday, setting the record The most goals in the Premier League were scored by a player for a single club. City won 5-0.
In what is likely his last appearance in the Premier League for City, Agüero has increased his career to 184 goals, beating former Manchester United star Wayne Rooney’s 183 for the Red Devils. The record came in the 76th minute when Agüero headed into the net after a Fernandinho cross:
Agüero had already danced through the Everton defense a few minutes earlier to bag his first:
The 32-year-old announced at the end of March that he would be leaving City after this season Reportedly at Barcelona to connect with international teammate Lionel Messi. He signed with City in July 2011 and scored 23 goals in his first league campaign that were no more memorable than the last. On the last day of the season, he made a 3-2 comeback against Queens Park Rangers and took the club’s first Premier League title during the downtime.
This season, Agüero has been hit by injuries and COVID absences. He finished the season with four league goals, by far the lowest total in a city jersey, and manager Pep Guardiola won another league title, mainly due to the lack of production from the forward position.
But that’s just a footnote on the career of Aguero, who is perhaps the greatest Manchester City player of all time. With City up against Chelsea in the Champions League final next Saturday, Aguero may have a moment of magic ahead of him before he leaves.
