See why the iconic Man City striker is shortlisted as we profile the 25 players in contention

We are looking at the 25 nominees who have been shortlisted for the Premier League Hall of Fame in 2022.

The six players with the most combined votes from the fans and a Premier League Awards panel will enter the Hall of Fame. Fans had their say by voting up until 21:00 BST on Sunday 3 April.

Sergio Aguero

The scorer of arguably the most iconic goal in Premier League history, Sergio Aguero embodied Manchester City's success in his decade at the Etihad Stadium. 

The Argentinian earned City's first Premier League title in dramatic fashion in May 2012, scoring deep into stoppage time to earn a 3-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers as they pipped Manchester United to the Trophy on goal difference. 

He scored 184 Premier League goals, the most by an overseas player and the highest total for one club. That included a Premier League record 12 hat-tricks, beating Alan Shearer's mark of 11 at Aston Villa in January 2020. 

He is also one of only five players to score five times in a Premier League match, achieving that at home to Newcastle United in October 2015.

His prowess in front of goal helped City to the Premier League title five times, including back-to-back triumphs in 2017/18 and 2018/19.

Aguero also won the 2014/15 Golden Boot and claimed a Premier League record seven EA SPORTS Player of the Month awards.

What they said

"He’s a legend, the best striker I ever had at this club… but he’s irreplaceable in the mind for our fans, to our people and to the players that played alongside him or the manager who worked with him." - Pep Guardiola

"What a career. What a player. Some of the goals and the standards that he set on the pitch were fantastic. He had the respect of his team-mates, opposing players and fans." - Shearer

Did you know?

Even if Aguero had played another 2,520 minutes of Premier League without scoring (or 28 full matches), he would still have the best minutes-per-goal ratio of any Premier League player with at least 20 goals.

Aguero's brace in his final match for City took him one ahead of Wayne Rooney for scoring the most Premier League goals for one club.

That double in his last appearance against Everton in May 2021 was also the second time he had scored twice as a substitute for City in the Premier League. The other was on his competition debut against Swansea City in August 2011.
