Guardiola: I’m not going to say Manchester City doesn’t need Aguero

Manchester City head coach Josep Guardiola spoke about the recovery of Citizens’ striker Sergio Aguero after a long injury.

“I’m not going to say that we don’t need Aguero. An important player for Manchester City. But Sergio is already 32 years old, he was absent for five months due to a serious injury. He came back, played 50 or 55 minutes and got injured again. We want to see him as early as possible on the field. I really want this, but you need to make sure that Sergio is in shape.

We have to be careful to make sure he doesn’t get hurt immediately upon his return. We all need to catch the right moment to release it on the field again. I hope this will happen soon and he will be able to keep himself in shape to play a large number of matches ”, – quotes the words of the Spaniard Sky Sports.

This season, Sergio Aguero played two matches in the English Premier League, in which he did not score with effective actions. He has one goal in one Champions League match.

The Argentinean’s contract with the “townspeople” ends on June 30, 2021. Transfermarkt estimates Aguero at € 42 million.
