Man City star to travel to Barcelona for further tests on injured knee


Argentine striker Sergio Aguero will travel to Barcelona in Spain to see a specialist concerning his knee after he picked up an injury in Manchester City’s 5-0 thrashing of Burnley at the Etihad Stadium on Monday.

Aguero was fouled by Burnley captain Ben Mee and as a result, suffered damage to his left knee and was withdrawn just before halftime with Gabriel Jesus coming on as a substitute.

“The striker will now travel to Barcelona to see Dr Ramon Cugat for further examination,” said Man City in a statement on Tuesday.

“Everyone at City wishes Sergio the best with his recovery and we will bring updates on his progress right here on”

City head coach Pep Guardiola revealed the 32-year-old had been struggling with a knee problem the past few weeks before the Premier League (PL) restart and now fears that his striker could miss the rest of the season. Picture: Manchester City.

“He felt something in his knee, and he will struggle in the last month, but we will see. It doesn’t look good. It is something in the knee,” said Guardiola after City’s 5-0 win over Burnley.

The Man City’s record scorer has scored 16 goals so far this season in 24 appearances with 4 assists to his name.

“The scans I did this morning have confirmed that I have damaged my left knee. It’s a pity but I’m in good spirits and so focused to come back as soon as possible. Thank you very much for all your messages,” said Aguero.
