'God knows what size shorts he was wearing!' - Man City star Aguero 'overweight' when he returned from injury, Keane claims


Sergio Aguero Manchester City 2020-21

Roy Keane has questioned Sergio Aguero's physical fitness, saying he felt the Manchester City striker looked overweight during his brief comeback from injury last month.

Aguero scored his first goal of the campaign against Porto in the Champions League last month, but was forced off at half-time against West Ham three days later with a hamstring problem.

The Argentine returned to full training this week but was not deemed fit enough to face champions Liverpool on Sunday.

Speaking after that game at Etihad Stadium, which ended 1-1, Keane questioned Aguero’s general fitness during his short return to the pitch earlier in the campaign.

“My issue with Aguero when he came back was he looked overweight. God knows what size shorts he was wearing but he looked really heavy,” the former Manchester United captain told Sky Sports.

“Sometimes you can be out injured, come back and hit the ground running, I don’t agree with this idea that players need two to three months to get back up to speed.

“But I was really worried when he came back as he looked really, really heavy.”

Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards, working as a pundit alongside Keane, defended Aguero, saying the striker is often rushed back without being fully fit because of his importance to the side.

Responding to Keane’s criticisms of Aguero’s weight, Richards said: “I think that is because he has been rushed back. Everyone is always asking, ‘Where is Aguero? Let’s get him back’.

“Sometimes when you are needed so much, you are not even fully fit, you’re being rushed back and you’re being judged out on the pitch. You know you are not really up to speed but you’ve got to do it for the team.”
