Aguero vows rapid re­turn to end City striker cri­sis

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

SER­GIO AGUERO has given Manch­ester City boss Manuel Pel­le­grini a mas­sive boost af­ter step­ping up his re­turn to fit­ness.

The Ar­gentina hit­man has been out of action since pick­ing up a knee lig­a­ment in­jury dur­ing City’s 1-0 win over Ever­ton at the Eti­had in De­cem­ber.

There had been con­cerns that Aguero could be set for a lengthy spell on the side­lines.

How­ever, City’s 19-goal top scorer has con­firmed that he has now re­sumed light train­ing – and it is un­der­stood he could re­turn be­fore the end of the month.

“I wanted you to know I’ve al­ready started field work,” Aguero said on Twit­ter.

“Slowly but surely I’ll be back at the right mo­ment. Thanks for the wishes!”

Aguero is un­likely to fea­ture for the Pre­mier League joint lead­ers against Ever­ton at Good­i­son Park on Satur­day.

But he could make his re­turn in the Eti­had clash against Ar­se­nal on Jan­uary 18.
