Aguero undergoes knee surgery to end season and start World Cup race

Aguero undergoes knee surgery to end season and start World Cup race

Sergio Agüero may miss the rest of the season after surgery to fix a knee injury, although the Manchester City striker is likely to be fit in time to link up with the Argentina squad to prepare for the World Cup.

"Aguero visited Dr Cugat last Thursday and they decided yesterday that the surgery in his meniscus was the best option".

Aguero is expected to be a key man for Argentina, who play their first match of the tournament against Iceland in Moscow on June 16.

In a minute-long film some may find cringeworthy, City players including Sergio Aguero and Phil Foden are seen celebrating on the pitch after the title-clinching game.

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero controls the ball during a training session in Manchester, England, Monday, April 9, 2018, on the eve of the Champions League quarter final second leg soccer match against Liverpool.

"Recovering from an arthroscopy on my knee", Aguero tweeted.

Aguero missed Saturday night's win at Tottenham after suffering an injury setback, but manager Pep Guardiola said last week he remained hopeful the 29-year-old would be available for the "last games" of the season.

He's obviously going to work hard in a bid to be fully fit in time for the World Cup, however.

City secured the title after local rivals Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at home to the Premier League's bottom club West Brom.
