A blow for club and country, as Aguero who sustained a hamstring injury on international duty, told the media he expects to be out for a month.
This inadvertently means, Aguero won’t be available for the Manchester derby on October 25, after he was carried off the pitch 24 minutes into Argentina’s 2-0 loss to Ecuador.
Aguero has gone through a battery of tests in Argentina on Friday, with the Manchester City striker saying he’ll be out till November.
“I think I’m going to be out for a month,” he told the media outside the clinic.
It is reported he has torn his hamstring and the scans will determine the exact extent of the injury and the expected recovery period.
The minimum recuperation time for even the mildest of tears is three weeks.
