Sergio Aguero to Miss First Two Months of the English Premier League
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed that his key striker Sergio Aguero could miss the first two months of the English Premier League season. Segio Aguero suffered a knee injury against Burnley on the 22nd of June. It kept the Argentine out of the final 10 games of City’s domestic campaign as well their two Champions League matches in August.
Guardiola says he is now uncertain whether City’s 32-year-old record goalscorer will be fit until November. The manager said: “We knew the injury was difficult.” “He still hasn’t had one training session with us and Sergio is not a guy who regains his physical condition quickly. He has been out for a long time, so maybe in one or two months he will be ready.”
Sergio Aguero’s obvious replacement, Gabriel Jesus, scored five goals in 12 games at the end of last season. Guardiola does have new signing Ferran Torres available for Monday’s trip to Wolves. However, Torres is more of a wide player, so the likely to stick to Jesus and Raheem Sterling who can play as a ‘false nine’.
