'Should have gone to Specsavers' Twitter reacts to Scots artist's Sergio Aguero statue
Premier League side Manchester City have just unveiled a statue to a club legend created by the sculptor behind the Kelpies.
The Sergio Aguero tribute was unveiled on Friday morning (May 13) outside the Etihad Stadium.
It recreates the striker's famous celebration after he scored the goal that secured the club its first-ever Premier League title, which happened ten years ago to the day.
The statue was created in Philadelphia by famed Scots artist Andy Scott and has been made using thousands of welded pieces of galvanised steel – much like his similar landmark, the Kelpies in Falkirk.
Fans have been reacting on Twitter and its fair to say some weren't impressed.
One user, @denimjon, quipped: "They should have done one that looks like Sergio Aguero, that would have been brilliant."
Another added: "Looks like something out of Blackpools Madame Tussaud’s."
"Should have gone to Specsavers," joked someone else.
This led to the official Specsavers account getting in on the act, posting: "Did they use the right picture?"
Others said the statue looked like fellow former City player David Villa or Real Madrid star Tony Kroos.
It also wasn't long before people couldn't help but compare it to the now-infamous Cristiano Ronaldo statue.
Others compared it to the White Walkers from Game of Thrones and even computer game character Kratos from God of War.
Others were much fairer in their appraisal, one person added: "Artistically it’s very impresssive. Looks nothing like Aguero."
While another described it as "breathtakingly beautiful".
