Aguero could miss the first two months of the season, warns Guardiola


Sergio Aguero Manchester City

Sergio Aguero could miss the first two months of the season as the Manchester City striker battles back from a knee injury.

Aguero, 32, has been training alone at the Etihad Campus and will definitely miss the Premier League opener against Wolves on Monday night.

Despite hoping to have played some part in the European competition in Portugal in August, City boss Pep Guardiola revealed that his comeback will still have to wait a little longer.

"We knew that the injury was difficult," Guardiola said. "He is doing the job, in maybe one month or two months he will be ready.

"He has to come back on the pitch and regain the physical condition.

"Sergio was out for a long time and Sergio is not a guy who regains the physical condition quick so Ithink in one month or two months he will be ready."

Aguero, who is in the final year of his City contract, only featured in 32 matches last season - the lowest number since joining from Atletico Madrid nine years ago.

With a truncated season following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, a two-month lay-off could see him miss as many as 12 matches including the Premier League clash with champions Liverpool.

But it is hoped that he will return sooner after he stepped up his ball work earlier this week.

Guardiola is already facing a selection dilemma for Wolves with Aymeric Laporte also unavailable.

The French defender only returned to training on Friday after self-isolating when he tested positive to coronavirus.

Riyad Mahrez also tested positive in recent weeks but is contention for the trip to Molineux.

"Riyad came back four days ago and Friday was the first day Aymeric is coming back,"Guardiola said.

"Riyad will be available, Laporte not yet. Aguero has not made one training session with us."

New signings Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres could make their City debuts against Wolves while Phil Foden is also available after he broke Iceland's quarantine rules on international duty with England.
