Sergio Leonel ‘Kun’ Aguero del Castillo, nicknamed as El Kun, is an Argentina international football player who currently features for the English and European giants Manchester City. Aguero is considered as a young pretender to the Argentine great Diego Armando Maradona.
Aguero plays as a striker and made his professional debut for Argentine club Independiente in July, 2003 becoming the youngest player to debut in the Argentine First Division at only 15 years and 35 days. He played successfully for Independiente until the summer of 2006 when he was signed by Atletico Madrid for 15 million euros.
Aguero did not impress much in his first season at Atletico but in the 2007-2008 season stood out as the best player for Atleti and one of the stars in La Liga. He guided Atletico Madrid to a spot in the 2008-2009 UEFA Champions League season.
Aguero inspired Atletico to the UEFA Europa League triumph in 2009-10 and the UEFA Super Cup in 2010. After another successful campaign with the Madrid club, he was signed by Manchester City for £35 million. He made a total of 175 La Liga appearances for Atletico, scoring 74 goals in the process.
Aguero was crucial in City’s maiden Premier League triumph in 2011-12 and scored a 94th minute winner against Queens Park Rangers that proved to the goal that clinched the Citizens the title.
Aguero was the star of the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup and won the Golden Boot and the Golden Ball honours in the competition for his thrilling displays for Argentina. He has played over 35 matches for the senior Argentine team since making his debut in 2007, playing at the 2010 World Cup finals and the 2010 Copa America.
