Manchester City fans are livid after a mural dedicated to Sergio Aguero in the city centre was removed after his transfer to Barcelona.
Aguero, who moved to Barca this summer after his contract ended at the Etihad Stadium (fcbarcelona.com), is an unrivalled club legend.
The £16.2m-valued star (Transfermarkt) is the Citizens’ record goalscorer after spending 10 years at the club (mancity.com), and he will be forever remembered for the goal he scored in injury time against QPR in 2012 to clinch City’s first-ever Premier League title.
The iconic moment provided the inspiration for the mural, which was previously on show in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. However, to the dismay of many City supporters, it has now been removed. Given Aguero’s importance to City, it is surprising to see it stripped down so soon.
Should the mural have stayed?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts, with one fan simply branding it as ‘disrespect’.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Aguero news below
“This is sadistic. Why would anyone do that. How could the people removing it be able to do it.”
“WHY WHY WHY”
“Why would you put it up in the first place if it was going to be removed. Was it all for PR?? The disrespect.”
“What was the point in painting it If it wasn’t there to stay just doesn’t make sense.”
“What was the point of it then?”
