Aguero feels ‘fan­tas­tic,’ in peak con­di­tion af­ter surgery

Global Times - - Sports -

Manch­ester City striker Ser­gio Aguero has said there is no lin­ger­ing pain in his knee for the first time in years and he feels in peak con­di­tion fol­low­ing surgery in April.

Aguero missed the end of last sea­son as City won the Premier League, but the 30-yearold re­cov­ered to make Ar­gentina’s squad for the World Cup in Rus­sia where he scored two goals be­fore their exit from the last 16.

“I feel fan­tas­tic... I don’t feel any dis­com­fort,” Aguero told the club’s web­site.

“Dur­ing the past few years, I felt pains at times and when last sea­son came to an end, we de­cided it would be best to start treat­ment. And the re­sults were pos­i­tive.”

Aguero, who scored 21 goals in 25 league ap­pear­ances last sea­son, has hit the ground run­ning in the new cam­paign with three goals from four starts, in­clud­ing a hat trick in the 6-1 vic­tory over Hud­der­s­field Town.

“I’m not sure if this is the best start of a sea­son for me, but it’s the best I’ve felt in years,” Aguero added.

City, who are fourth in the ta­ble with 10 points from four games, host pro­moted Ful­ham on Satur­day.
