The Red Devil’s ex-star praises Man City prolific striker.

Sergio Aguero

’s contract with

Manchester City

expires this summer and he will leave the Citizens after 10 successful seasons.

One of the spotlights of Aguero’s career dates back to 2012, when he scored a last minutes goal against Queens Park Rangers to snatch the Premier League title out of

Manchester United

’s hand and gift it to the Citizens boss,

Roberto Mancini

.

Former Man Utd defender

Rio Ferdinand

has now praised Aguero, marking him as ‘one of the best PL strikers of all time’.

"Agueroooooooooooo! This name, this goal, this moment still hits me at times when I least expect it like a bolt out the blue!”

Ferdinand wrote on Instagram.

"Our closest rivals just across the city, snatching the title from out of our hands. Absolutely floored, distraught, devastated....a whole season demolished in the final seconds of the last game.

"What I will say is that as much as I hated the outcome, I never hated or disliked Sergio for his moment like I thought I would.

"I think how humble and chilled he seems plays a big part but as much, or more, is how much I respect him as a footballer. He is one of the hardest strikers I have ever marked.

"He was direct once he had the ball. As a defender, he always had you on the edge and you had to have total concentration to make sure you knew where he was at all times.

"Rivalries put to one side for a moment, Sergio Aguero is one of the best PL strikers of all time, no doubts. Snatched the PL trophy from under my nose but respect when respect is due! Good luck for the future."
