Manchester City have paid tribute to their top goalscorer Sergio Aguero by imprinting the timestamp of his famous Premier League-winning goal in their new home shirt.
Aguero hit the back of the net 260 times for the Blues during ten years at the Etihad – earning himself a place in the record books and his very own statue outside the stadium.
But arguably no goal was greater than his strike against Queens Park Rangers in 2012 – as the Argentine netted with 93 minutes and 50 seconds on the clock to secure City their first ever Premier League title.
The 32-year-old has departed for Barcelona for the upcoming season – but his legacy will remain very much intact in Manchester.
The new Man City 2021/22 home shirt – designed with PUMA – contains an all-over repeated graphic of a digital clock and ’93:20′ scoreboard pattern – paying tribute to Ageuro’s stunning last-gasp goal back in 2012.
The timestamp is printed on the inside of the collar of the shirts, whilst ’10’ is highlighted.
The home jersey – complemented by sky blue shorts and hooped socks – revels in the fact that since the ’93:50′ strike, City have proceeded to win five Premier League titles, most recently in 2020/21.
Former City player Micah Richards told the City website: “Witnessing that moment [the Aguero goal in 2021] is something I will never forget.
“When the goal went in, we knew we had just seen greatness, something special.
“The league was hanging in the balance and then to secure it in the final minute, in that fashion, I don’t think will ever be replicated.
“The new kit is a perfect tribute to one of the greatest moments in City’s history.”
The new home jersey combines 100% recycled polyester with advanced PUMA dryCELL thermoregulation technology to “ensure uncompromising fit and mobility, keeping the athlete dry and comfortable.”
An ultra-light jacquard structure is integrated into the back of the shirt for extra breathability.
The new Manchester City home kit is on sale now at the Man City shop.
