Manchester City Update : Sergio Aguero

After EPL Matchweek 12, Premiership top goal scorers to date are Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool) and Luis Suarez (Liverpool) nine goals; Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) and Loic Remy (Newcastle United) with eight goals; Robin van Persie (Manchester United), Oliver Giroud (Arsenal), and Romelu Lukaku (Everton) with seven goals; Aaron Ramsey with six goals; Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Yaya Toure (Manchester City), and Oscar (Chelsea) with five goals.

Superstar Man City striker Kun Aguero has musical talent as well as being one of the EPL's top goal scorers.

One of Kun's favorite cumbia bands called Los Leales recorded a song titled “El Kun Aguero.”

Cumbia is a Latin American style of music that originated in Colombia’s Caribbean coastal region. It has its origins in the 1920’s but reached its peak in the 50’s.

When asked to explain his nickname, Sergio Aguero told BBC Sport:

“Kun actually represents a Japanese cartoon character from my favourite series that I used to watch as a child,” said Aguero. “I coined the nickname Kun because of my resemblance to the character, which was actually named Kum Kum."

“My grandparents were the first ones who gave me the name. I think my nickname is different in comparison to most athletes and so I have grown to appreciate it because it's unique. It's not every day an athlete is nicknamed after a cartoon character!”
