Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero says “everything went well” after having surgery on his injured knee

Aguero was forced off before half-time in the home side’s 5-0 Premier League win over Burnley on Monday following a challenge by defender Ben Mee

In his post-match interviews, Guardiola revealed Aguero had a knee problem before the match.

The Argentine had traveled to Barcelona to see a knew specialist amid fears his season might be over.

On Wednesday, Aguero tweeted, “Everything went well, and I’ll soon begin recovery” with a photograph of himself lying in a hospital bed.

Asked if Aguero would be fit for the Champions League resumption on 7-8 August, the head-coach responded “I don’t know right now” though he feared the 32-year-old could miss the rest of the league season which ends in July.

“Once he has finished the surgery, we will know the time Sergio will come back to play with us”.

City is due to face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with a 2-1 leaf from the first leg in Spain.

Focusing on the Chelsea match, Guardiola said City had plenty of options, with Gabriel Jesus the only main striker fit and ready but Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling are able to slot into the role.

The manager indicated defender John Stones was close to a return after an ankle injury but was unlikely to face Chelsea.

“He is on the pitch training and getting better,” said the Spaniard. “Hopefully in the next few days, he can play in the team.”
