Man City chairman Khaldoon tribute to Aguero

Manchester City chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak has paid tribute to Serio Aguero after his retirement announcement yesterday.

Pep Guardiola and Txiki Begiristain were in attendance at Barcelona's Nou Camp for Aguero to confirm his news, while the club chairman eulogised about everything he has achieved in his extraordinary career.

“The facts speak for themselves - Sergio is quite simply the most ruthless striker in the history of the Premier League," he said. "It is extraordinary that his statistics, more reflective of two careers, are in fact those of a player whose time in the game was cut short.

“His impact lives not only in the club that we are today, but in the club that we will be for many years to come. He has earned the adoration of the City family, and the respect of the football family the world over."
