Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero reveals keyhole surgery on knee

City's Aguero on mend after knee surgery

"Fully motivated to get back soon to the field", Aguero wrote on Twitter.

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.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been ruled out for the rest of the ongoing Premier League season and now battling to be fit for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

The City star tweeted: "Recovering from an arthroscopy on my knee".


After missing four matches, Aguero came on in the Manchester derby but aggravated the injury when he was the victim of a reckless tackle from Ashley Young.

Aguero missed most of City's games in March because of a left knee injury sustained in training.

City said it was a "minor operation", potentially easing concerns about the Argentina international's participation in the World Cup in Russian Federation that starts on June 14.

With the league title wrapped up and City's Champions League campaign ended by Liverpool, the club can cope without their all-time leading scorer, who has 199 goals for the Manchester Club after scoring 30 in all competitions this season. He has two months before Argentina play their first group game against Iceland on June 16 and is confident he will be ready.
