In the manner of Maradona.. Agüero’s historic shirt is auctioned

Media reports revealed that an auction was held for the shirt Sergio Aguero wore when he scored his historic goal for Manchester City in 2012.

Aguero scored a historic goal that led Manchester City to a 3-2 win over wild card Queens Park Rangers, in the final minutes of the two teams’ match in the final round of the 2011-2012 English Premier League season.

The dramatic victory gave the sky-blue team the title of the English Premier League, after it was a step away from passing to the coffers of its archenemy, Manchester United, as it raised City’s balance to 89 points, equal to its neighbor, to be judged by the goal difference in which Agüero’s teammates excelled.

This was Manchester City’s third Premier League title and first in the Premier League era (since 1992).

And the English website “Sportbible” said that the shirt will be put up for sale at auction on a specialized website between May 24 and 25.

According to preliminary estimates, the price of the shirt at auction is expected to be between 20,000 and 30,000 pounds.

This move comes a few days after the shirt of Diego Armando Maradona, the Argentine legend who scored the historic double against England in the 1986 World Cup quarterfinals, was sold.

And according to the British newspaper The Independent, the auction ended up selling the shirt for more than 7 million pounds, after the shirt was expected to sell for between 4 and 6 million pounds alone.

It should be noted that Aguero’s shirt was in the possession of a Manchester City locker room worker, who sold it to an antique dealer in Britain, who offered it for sale at auction.

Proceeds from the sale of the shirt will be donated to various charities in England.
