Kun assures City and Argentina supporters that he is “fine” despite leaving Goodison Park pitch with a groin issue.
Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero has played down the severity of the injury that saw him limp out of Saturday’s 3-2 win at Everton.
The 25-year-old left the pitch with a groin complaint, moments after scoring his 28th club goal of the season to draw City level at 1-1 at Goodison Park.
It had been feared that Aguero would miss City’s final two Premier League games of the season and possibly Argentina’s World Cup campaign as well.
However, he took to Twitter in the evening to assure supporters that he was “fine” and that he had left the field of play prematurely merely as a precaution.
Thank you for your concern. I left just as a precaution. Fortunately I’m fine, happy for the goal, the win and keeping our dream alive.

City’s victory at Everton sent them back to the top of the Premier League table.
They will be crowned champions of England for the second time in three years if they take maximum points from Wednesday’s home game against Aston Villa and next Sunday’s final-day clash with West Ham United, which is also at the Etihad Stadium.
City coped well without Aguero at Everton, as Edin Dzeko netted twice to secure the club’s first win on Merseyside since April 2009.
