After the former Manchester City striker was forced to hang up his boots with a heart condition, we pick out some of the standout statistics from his career…
Aguero was the youngest player in Argentine top-flight history when he made his debut for Independiente as a 15-year-old in 2003.
Atletico Madrid broke their transfer record to sign him for €20m in 2006.
With 184 goals, Aguero is the fourthhighest goalscorer in Premier League history, the most prolific foreign player ever in the competition, and holds the record for the most goals at one club.
He scored at least 20 goals in five consecutive seasons, a record he shares with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
He is one of five players to score five goals in one Premier League match.
Nobody has scored more Premier League hat-tricks than Aguero’s 12.
During his Manchester City career he was named Premier League Player of the Month on seven occasions – more than any other player.
Aguero has the best strike rate in Premier League history, averaging a goal every 108 minutes.
Nobody has scored more goals in the Champions League for an English club (36), a record he shares with former Chelsea superstar Didier Drogba.
He lies third in Argentina’s list of all-time top scorers with 42 goals, and is one of only seven players to win over 100 caps for the South Americans.
His last-ever career goal was in Barca’s 2-1 defeat to Clasico rivals Real Madrid in October, taking his overall tally to 427.
