Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero confirms hamstring tear sustained during win over Stoke
06 January 2013 12:06
Aguero missed City's
3-0 win over Watford in the FA Cup third round after suffering the problem
late in the 3-0 win over Stoke on New Year's Day.
Manager Roberto Mancini initially said he hoped to have his joint top-scorer
back for next weekend's trip to Arsenal, but that now looks doubtful.
"The studies confirmed I have a torn muscle," Aguero wrote on his
Twitter account. "We have to keep on thinking positive and try to
recover in the best way possible.
"For that, I've travelled to Italy where a specialist is treating me.
I'll keep you up to date in how the injury evolves."
Aguero has 10 goals for City this season, level with Edin Dzeko, with both
players on the mark against Stoke.
