Sergio Aguero has confirmed he has suffered a hamstring tear and is in Italy receiving treatment from a specialist.
Aguero picked up the injury in the win over Stoke on New Year’s Day but it was initially thought the injury was not severe that he would return for game against Arsenal next weekend. Aguero revealed the severity of the injury on Twitter:
Studies confirmed I have a torn muscle.We have to keep thinking positive and try to recover in the best way.
It is not yet clear how long Aguero is likely to be out for but this is a serious blow to City and manager Roberto Mancini.
