Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero reveals keyhole surgery on knee

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero reveals keyhole surgery on knee

Aguero has not started a game since City's victory over Chelsea on 4 March.

Sergio Aguero is relieved Manchester City were spared the drama of their 2011-12 title triumph in clinching the Premier League crown.

City's all-time top scorer, Aguero is on 199 goals for the recently confirmed Premier League champions and will have to wait for his 200th until next season.

Aguero has had keyhole surgery after being troubled by a knee issue for the last five weeks.




The Albiceleste striker missed Manchester City's 3-1 Premier League win over Tottenham Hotspur last Saturday due to a knee injury, with his club manager Pep Guardiola claiming he did not know for how long the striker would be out of action.

City skipper Vincent Kompany spoke in the aftermath of United's defeat against West Brom of his determination to see Pep Guardiola's charges create a trophy-winning dynasty at the club, and Aguero concurs.

Aguero famously scored a 94th-minute victor with virtually the last kick of the season in 2012 in a 3-2 win over QPR to land the title ahead of United on goal difference. He played the last 15 or 20 minutes and, after the game, he said "I could not run, I cannot play".

'Now the trick is making sure we kick on again next season and come back even stronger. "It's been a pleasure to play with this team and be part of everything we've achieved this season". Then we can think about the World Cup and next season. "Let's enjoy the moment together with our fans and finish strongly".
