Manchester City confirmed club’s record scorer Sergio Agüero will leave the club after 10 years when his contract expires at the end of the season, bringing to an end his era at the club.
Agüero who joined City in 2011 and became the club’s record goalscorer in 2017 and is also the highest scoring foreigner in the Premier League, also the highest number of hat tricks with 12 took to social media to bid farewell to the club.
“When a cycle comes to an end, many sensations arise,” Agüero wrote on social media.
“A huge sense of satisfaction and pride remains in me for having played with Manchester City for a whole 10 seasons – unusual for a professional player in this day and age.
“Ten seasons with major achievement, throughout which I was able to become the top historic goalscorer and forging an indestructible bond with all those who love this club – people who will always be in my heart.
“I was to join during the reconstruction era of 2011, and with the guidance of the owners and the contribution of many players, we earned a place among the greatest in the world. The task to maintain this well-deserved privileged position will remain on others.
“As for myself, I will continue to give it my utmost for the rest of the season to win more titles and bring more joy to the fans. Then, a new stage with new challenges will begin and I am fully ready to face them with the same passion and professionalism that I have always dedicated to continue competing at the highest level.”
