But the 32-year-old couldn’t add to his remarkable goal tally as his wait for a Champions League triumph continued.
Aguero’s introduction late in the contest was his 389th appearance and his last for the Premier League champions.
He remains the club’s record scorer with 260 goals in all competitions.
Aguero couldn’t contain his emotions at the full-time whistle as he was left pondering what could have been.
The ex-Atletico Madrid star broke down in tears on the pitch before being consoled by team-mate Phil Foden.
Aguero also looked devastated as he had his head in his hands while wearing the runners-up medal.
The club legend departs the Etihad with 12 major pieces of silverware including five league titles.
But the biggest of all has evaded him yet again.
