Aguero out for 6 weeks

AgueroMANCHESTER City striker Sergio Aguero is set to miss between four and six weeks with a knee ligament injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini says.

The Argentine, 26, was injured in the third minute of Saturday’s 1-0 win over Everton after a challenge with Muhamed Besic, and left the pitch in tears.

“He will be out for four to six weeks,” said Pellegrini.

“It will depend on his recovery. But our team doesn’t depend on one player.”

Aguero has earned widespread acclaim for his performances this season, with Pellegrini hailing the striker as “one of the best players in the world”.

His highlights include scoring all four in a 4-1 rout of Tottenham on October 18 and a hat-trick in the 3-2 Champions League win over Bayern Munich on November 25. – BBC
