Manchester City unveiled a statue of Sergio Aguero on Friday. The tribute comes ten years after Aguero scored an unforgettable goal against QPR 90 + 4 ‘, sealing Manchester City with a 2011/12 Premier League win, 44 years after the previous championship.
The statue of Aguero, east of Etihad Stadium, was created by the famous sculptor Andy Scott, as he had already done for Kompany and David Silva.

It turns out that the social media rating of the statue spread quickly and how the character is very similar to the German Toni Kroos from Real Madrid.
The German joined in the jokes and even reacted on Twitter to share the BBC reporter’s post: Simon Stone published a picture of Aguero’s statue titled “Sergio is here”. Kroos challenged, “Are you sure?”

There are several adjacent montages of the statue and Kroos with the same look, and the similarity is really hard to ignore.
