The shirt worn by Sergio Aguero when he scored Manchester City’s title-winning goal against Queens Park Rangers in 2012 is being put up for auction.
Aguero was wearing the No.16 shirt when he found the back of the net in the 93rd minute to win the game 3-2 and beat Manchester United to the title.
Aguero’s goal is widely considered to be one of the Premier League’s greatest moments as his stoppage-time winner ended Man City’s 44-year wait for a title.

The unwashed Umbro shirt – covered in dry champagne from the post-match celebrations – is expected to sell for £20,000 when it goes under the hammer.
Hansons Auctioneers have described the shirt as ‘a priceless memento’ and said some of the money made on November 3 will go to charity.
David Wilson-Turner, Hansons’ head of sports memorabilia, said: ‘It was arguably the most important goal in the club’s history. Former Manchester City player Mario Balotelli asked Aguero for the shirt as a souvenir but left it behind with his bag.

‘It was obtained by a former Manchester City kitman who donated it the National Football Shirt Collection which loans sporting memorabilia to museums.’
Collection owner Neville Evans, from Wales, added: ‘After Balotelli left the stadium without his bag – and the shirt – the items were transferred to the club’s training ground. However, they were never claimed.
‘After some time had passed, the former Manchester City staff member who found the shirt gifted it to the National Football Shirt Collection via my curator. I never planned to sell it but my curator is currently undergoing medical treatment.
‘The auction proceeds will be shared between him and two charities important to him, Testicular Cancer UK and the Stroke Association.’
