Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero is expecting to miss a month of football with a hamstring injury.
The striker pulled up whilst chasing a ball in Argentina’s 2-0 loss to Ecuador on Thursday night and was forced to leave the field on a striker.
Speaking to La Nacion, Aguero confirmed that the initial diagnosis would see him sidelined for four weeks.
“I think it’ll be a month without playing,” he said after leaving the medical clinic where he underwent an examination.
From a Manchester United perspective that’s great news because the Manchester derby is coming up at the end of October and Aguero has got a great goalscoring record against us. Without him in the side, they are significantly weaker.
The comes at the end of a tough month for Louis van Gaal‘s side after consecutive away trips to Everton and Moscow, so it will certainly be an advantage if City’s main man is out, especially after he scored five goals last weekend in the Premier League.
Injuries are a real plague to Aguero’s career an they consistently pop up their ugly head to stop him getting any consistent game time but for the rest of the Premier League, the longer Aguero is out the better.
As well as Aguero, David Silva has just hobbled off for Spain with an ankle problem after a bad tackle, so the injury news is building for City.
