Aregntinian striker has missed City's last four games through injury
Sergio Aguero has been out of action with an injury, causing him to miss out on both domestic matches with Manchester City and international friendlies with Argentina. Aguero first sustained the injury to his knee during training when he tried to run a goal and chip a keeper. He has since received intensive treatment in Abu Dhabi, City’s warm-weather training camp, and is now recovering back in Manchester.
Meanwhile, Argentina played Italy at the Etihad Stadium on 23rd March and, as expected, Aguero was on the sideline, as was Lionel Messi, and neither player took part in the game. Argentina won the game 2-0, even with two of their top stars off the pitch.
The international club also confirmed that he wouldn’t be playing in the friendly against Spain on Tuesday, 28th March, and indeed, Aguero stayed in Manchester to continue his recovery. This time, Argentina couldn’t hold up without him and suffered a crushing 6-1 defeat against Spain. They could have done more with key players Aguero and Messi up front, but even so, it looked like Spain had so much control that it wouldn’t have mattered too much in the end.
Back on the domestic side, Aguero’s current home of Manchester City have around 32.5 million fans around the world, according to the Unibet Premier League fan base, and many of them will be excited to see him help his team to the victory as the season draws closer to its end. Aguero has had an excellent season so far and has scored 30 goals in 36 appearances with City, leaving him only three goals away from smashing through his record, which he achieved with the club last season. Only his injury is slowing him down now.
Manchester City continue their Premier League campaign when they play Everton on the 31st March. Aguero already missed out on their 2-0 victory over Stoke following his injury, but he is expected to be back in top condition to take up his position in time to play Everton. City will have an opportunity to take one step closer to winning the league title, a title which is already inevitably theirs to take, with every game representing a chance to seal the deal.
