Man City striker Aguero admits his season over

City's Aguero on mend after knee surgery

Argentina and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in a bid to be fully fit for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Club's all-time leading scorer has roared up to the tantalising mark of 199 goals in City's title-winning 2017/18 campaign, with 30 in all competitions this season.

Argentina's World Cup campaign starts against Iceland on June 16 and D'Agostino believes that, due to Aguero's injury history, he will struggle to regain full fitness in time.

Should Jorge Sampaoli be unable to rely on Aguero for the World Cup, the Argentina coach could turn to Inter captain Mauro Icardi or Juventus striker Paulo Dybala, both of whom were left out of his most recent squad.

Having seen City win the Premier League with five games to spare at the weekend, the 29-year-old made a decision to have the operation immediately in order to give him enough time to recover ahead of the tournament.

"Fully motivated to get back soon to the field".

He came on during the second half in the second leg of City's Champions League quarterfinal against Liverpool three days later.

He missed Saturday's win over Tottenham and City have now confirmed the 29-year-old is unlikely to play again this season.

But City said Aguero had aggravated the injury after being caught by a strong tackle from United's Ashley Young in the Manchester derby earlier this month.
