Farewell to Aguero in his last game at Etihad Stadium with the Home fans

Sergio Aguero, City’s all-time leading scorer, will be among the players and coaches saying their goodbyes when the league season reaches its climax Sunday with only a couple of loose ends to tie up.

Fitness issues have blighted Aguero’s final season at City — indeed, Guardiola couldn’t promise Friday the striker would be healthy enough to play against Everton at Etihad Stadium — but that won’t damage the Argentina international’s legacy at both the club and in English soccer.

“He is a guy like Romario,” Guardiola said, referring to the former Brazil striker with a low center of gravity, “in five meters, it’s like a lion in the jungle — making those steps and killing the opponent.

“He has this quality, but his biggest quality is his unique sense of goal.”

Aguero has scored 182 goals in the Premier League — putting him fourth on the competition’s all-time list behind Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney and Andy Cole — and has a record 258 for City. He potentially has one more game for the club after this weekend, though he is unlikely to feature at all in the Champions League final against Chelsea on May 29.

Replacing Aguero will likely be uppermost in the thoughts of Guardiola and City’s hierarchy during the offseason and Harry Kane has been one of the strikers linked with the newly crowned Premier League champions.
