Man City striker Aguero confirms hamstring tear

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero says tests have shown he

has torn a hamstring, but gave no indication when he will be fit to

return to action.

The Argentina international missed City’s 3-0 victory over

Watford in the FA Cup third round on Saturday after sustaining the

injury late in the 3-0 win over Stoke on Tuesday.

Manager Roberto Mancini initially hoped to have his joint

top-scorer back for next weekend’s trip to Arsenal, but that looks

doubtful after Aguero visited a specialist in Italy.

On Twitter, Aguero wrote on Saturday that ”the studies

confirmed I have a torn muscle. We have to keep on thinking

positive and try to recover in the best way possible.”

Aguero has 10 goals for City this season, level with Edin

Dzeko.
