Argentine could be out for lengthy spell with injury suffered during Everton clash.
Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that Argentine striker Sergio Aguero will miss his side’s crucial midweek Champions League tie with AS Roma after suffering a knee ligament injury according to the Daily Mirror.
The Premier League’s top-scorer limped off just seven minutes in Man City’s 1-0 win over Everton and it appears that the injury could be lengthy one with Pellegrini hoping for good news when doctor’s report back on the 26 year old’s status on Sunday.
“Sergio has a knee ligament problem and we will see tomorrow how serious it is.
“It is not good news and we will see tomorrow when he [visits the doctor] but he won’t be able to play next week.” Added Pellegrini.
“We must wait for the doctor to see how [bad it is] but the important thing is he won’t be fit for the Roma game. We will see tomorrow, but at the moment, we’re not sure [about the length of the injury].”
Aguero has been in fine form this season, bagging 19 goal in 20 appearances in all competitions.
