The Manchester City striker has been forced to go under the knife and is now likely to miss his side’s final five games of the season
Manchester City and Argentina striker Sergio Aguero has undergone minor knee surgery and will seemingly struggle to return in time for any of his side’s final five matches of the season.
Aguero has scored 30 times in all competitions for newly crowned Premier League champions City despite recently spending a month on the sidelines with a knee problem.
He returned to action as a substitute in the derby defeat to Manchester United on April 7, and was on the receiving end of a strong challenge in the penalty area from Ashley Young that went unpunished by referee Martin Atkinson.
Aguero made another brief cameo appearance during City’s vain attempt at a Champions League comeback against Liverpool last week, but manager Pep Guardiola ruled the 29-year-old out of Saturday’s 3-1 win over Tottenham, citing Young’s challenge as the cause of the injury.
