Six worst statues of footballers after Sergio Aguero's that took nine months to build

Manchester City unveiled a new statue, honouring Sergio Aguero and his 93rd-minute title-clinching goal against QPR in 2012. As poignant a tribute as it was given the Argentine striker's premature retirement last year, fans weren't super impressed.Some thought it looked mote like Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos, while others thought it looked like he was singing in the shower while washing his back with loofah from certain angles.

Though jokes aside, it's not a complete eyesore … unlike the others on this list. So without any further ado, here are six footballer statues that are absolutely terrible.Where do we even begin with this one? It looks like a cross between a novelty dashboard bobble-head and a Diana Ross-inspired washing-up sponge.Everything is comically out of proportion.

Salah's head is about 16 times bigger than his body, his hands have webbed fingers and for some weird reason the sculptor decided to give him one hell of an Adam's apple.Others say he resembles Coronation Street's Gail Platt, or Dobby the house elf from Harry Potter. I wonder which comparison Mo would prefer?Are there any terrible statues we've missed off our list? Let us know if there are in the comments section. From the same 'artist' who created that Cristiano Ronaldo monstrosity (oh, we'll get to that), this Gareth Bale bust - built for the 2017 Champions League final in Cardiff - looks suspiciously like Barcelona's Gerard Pique at first glance.In fairness it looks a bit like Bale, particularly seeing as it captures the look of total indifference the Real Madrid superstar has had on face while warming the bench for the past four seasons.But ultimately, if this was handed in as a GSCE art project, no one would bat an eyelid.Why is he

Sergio Aguero’s new Manchester City statue looking more like him than the Argentine legend.Aguero’s statue was unveiled outside the Etihad Stadium on Friday, ten years on from his iconic last-minute goal against Queens Park Rangers which clinched the league title for City. The Premier League’s second all-time top goal-scorer was celebrated by having a silver-looking statue of him erected at the club.And the 33-year-old was present at the unveiling and smiled as he was pictured alongside it, though the statue was instantly mocked on social media by fans who claimed it looked more like Real Madrid veteran Toni Kroos.German international Kroos even got in on the banter himself, jokingly responding to a tweet of the statue with: “Sure?” after they captioned it “Sergio is here.”Fans also chimed in with their thoughts, with one Twitter user writing: “Is it just me or this statue looks more like Kroos than Aguero?”Do you think Sergio Aguero deserves a better statue? Let us know in the comments section belowAnother joked: “Have you seen that Toni Kroos statue at Etihad Stadium? Sergio Aguero must be so jealous of Kroos after everything he did for the Citizens.”Aguero is arguably one of the most important players in the club’s recent history.

Gareth Bale left in stitches on subs bench after Eden Hazard's brutal Real Madrid snub
Real Madrid’s shock 1-0 Copa del Rey defeat at the hands of Athletic Bilbao.Hazard looked as though he was going to enter the fray but a change of heart from head coach Ancelotti left the Belgian forward walking back to the bench to join Bale and the rest of the substitutes. And Ancelotti’s decision appeared to amuse the Welshman, who was seen laughing to himself at his team-mate.The La Liga leaders went on to lose the game thanks to an 89th minute winner from Alex Berenguer.Bale was also an unused substitute in the contest, with Ancelotti opting to bring on both Isco and Eduardo Camavinga for Vinicius Junior and Toni Kroos at different points in the second half.The Wales international has struggled with injuries this season, and as a result, has not made a league appearance since the 1-0 win over Real Betis back in August.Bale was on the bench for Real Madrid’s last league outing against Elche but the 32-year-old didn’t feature.Real Madrid had been favourites to win the competition with the likes of Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla all suffering early exits in previous rounds.But Berenguer’s winner means it’s Bilbao who will advance to the final four where they will meet Betis.Betis booked their place in the semi-final with a 4-0 win over Real Sociedad at the Reale Arena on Thursday.Want to be on the ball with all of the latest football news?Well then sign up for the brilliant Daily Star football email newsletter!From the latest transfer news to the agenda-setting stories, get it all in your email inbox - don't miss a thing.It only takes a matter of seconds.Simply type your email address into the box at the top of this article and hit 'subscribe'.And that's it, job done.

Real Madrid star Toni Kroos receives one of strangest yellow cards ever vs Elche
Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos was left baffled after his 'ghost tackle' against Elche in the Copa del Rey earned him one of the strangest yellow cards of his career.The former Germany international was named in a makeshift XI by Carlo Ancelotti in the last 16 of the cup competition, and they were on the brink of an upset after the game headed into extra time.However, Isco managed to guide home a loose ball in the first-half of the additional period following Gonzalo Verdu's goal, with Eden Hazard going round the keeper to avoid a penalty shoot-out.In a game that included red cards for Pere Milla and Marcelo, it was a yellow card that got fans talking the most on social media.With the score level at 0-0 after 77 minutes of action, Kroos was shown yellow by referee Jorge Figueroa Vazquez at the Estadio Martinez Valero for a 'tackle' on Tete Morente.Kroos might be no stranger to a caution, receiving 44 bookings across his 342 appearances for Real Madrid, but none of them quite the same as this one.With Morente trying to play his way out of danger just outside the Elche box, a Marseille turn led to him slipping over on the turf in front of the ref.At the same time, Kroos had swung a boot in the direction of his opponent - but was a long way from making any contact as the player fell over with his own momentum.Have you seen a stranger booking? Tell us in the comments sectionAlthough Real Madrid did go on to taste victory, many couldn't get the booking off their minds.One fan wrote: "What is this now?"With a second posting: "Kroos was booked for this."A third continued: "F****** crazy."Following the fixture, and despite the odd booking, Ancelotti was delighted with their progression.He said: “This is the match that has
