Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan’s take-over of Manchester City in 2008 ignited a new era.

Aguero was one of the club’s first big-money signings that earmarked the start of it.

Arriving from Atletico Madrid in 2011, he helped the club establish itself as one of English football’s modern big-hitters.

As a result City are now Champions League regulars and reached the semi-final of the competition in the 2015/16 season.

Now, Aguero says the next regeneration are responsible for making sure the club retains its elite status.

He continued: “I was to join during the reconstruction era of 2011, and with the guidance of the owners and the contributions of many players, we earned a place among the greatest of the world.

The task to maintain this well-deserved privileged position will remain on others.”

Agüero has achieved an astonishing average of 26 goals a season while at Manchester City. Not only a City legend, he will go down as one of the Premier League greats.
