Aguero out 4-6 weeks after sustaining knee injury vs. Everton

BY foxsports • December 9, 2014

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could be absent for four to six weeks due to knee ligament damage, manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed.

The prolific Argentina international, who has scored 19 goals for the champions this season, was injured in the opening minutes of City's 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat of Everton on Saturday. Speaking in Italy ahead of the Champions League game against Roma, Pellegrini offered the forecast on Aguero's likely recovery period, saying the striker had undergone a scan.

Pellegrini added, however, that he could not be exact with the timescale.

When asked about the condition of Aguero, Pellegrini said in a press conference: "Well Sergio - we know he is injured. He cannot play tomorrow. He will see how long he will be out, but I think it is more important for us to think about the players we have available for an important game against Roma."

Pellegrini was then asked whether he was unclear about the duration Aguero would be out of action, to which he said: "We know, but it is difficult to know exactly how long he will be injured. It could be four, five or six weeks. It depends a lot on the way he recovers."
