This essay is on the topic – my favorite sportsperson. I just love football and it is my favorite sport. Naturally, my favorite sportsman is a footballer. He is none other than the great Argentine Sergio Aguero.
Yes, Sergio Aguero is my favorite footballer and sportsperson. And this essay is dedicated to him. Sergio Aguero is fondly known as Kun Aguero among his fans. He is one of the best center forwards of the modern game. In this essay, I’ve covered an outline of his career, his achievements, his qualities and interesting facts about his life.
Before taking a close look at Aguero’s life and career, let me tell you more about how I fell in love with his style of play. I’m a football fanatic. I just love this game. I’ve been playing football since my childhood.
As a child, I’d play football on the street with my friends. We would use bricks as make-shift goal posts and play football. Gradually, I got hooked to the game. Seeing my interest in football, my parents took me to the local football club and enrolled me in their youth team.
Though I couldn’t make it to the professional level, I still play amateur football. The game has taught me a lot about life in general. Football has taught me the importance of dedication and hard work. It has taught me that with dedication and hard work, one can improve his/her game! And it can also help one improve in any walk of life/activity!
In short, I’m crazy about football. My parents are also avid football fans. They support the EPL club Manchester City. We often travel to the stadium to catch live matches. These days, I follow the club’s matches on TV or the internet. Internet and smartphones have made it very easy to catch football action any time, anywhere!

His most important goal came in the last minuted of the last game of the season! Well, who can forget that legendary match? Manchester City were on the verge of loosing the EPL title.

He is a club legend for us.
Okay, enough about his career at City. Let us talk about his early life and career now. Sergio Aguero was born in Buenos Aires. Since childhood, little Aguero was interested in playing football. Nothing could keep him away from football.
