Anxious Man. City await Aguero news
Roberto Mancini faces an anxious wait to discover the severity of a knee injury suffered by striker Sergio Aguero in the first game of Manchester City’s Premier League title defence on Sunday.
The Argentinian was carried off on a stretcher after landing awkwardly following a clean tackle by Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne and, although Aguero spoke positively about the injury on Twitter, Mancini is understandably concerned about what a scan might reveal.
“I am worried. We don’t know how serious it is because we need to wait maybe two days for the scan. But usually the knee is dangerous,” Mancini said.
“The injury was so strange because it was not a bad tackle. It was not strong.
“The good thing was that he wanted to try and play. But at the moment we can’t say anything.”
Aguero was more hopeful over his injury.
Writing on his official Twitter account, he said: “The studies I had done revealed there’s no significant injury but it was a very tough blow to my knee.
“The physicians will evaluate the time it will take for me to recover.
“I have no words to thank for your concern for me and with this much support, I’ll recover faster.
“And I want to congratulate my team-mates for their effort in turning this game around. Now more than ever – c’mon@MCFC !!”
