Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero has returned to training after a month on the sidelines.
The frontman has been out with a hamstring injury. It is not yet clear when he will be cleared to play although he could feature in the Capital One Cup final against Sunderland on Sunday should his return go well this week.
Having only scored three goals in their last five games, this will surely be not only a great sight for City fans but a worrying one for the rest of the league.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini said
“Aguero can give us all a huge lift, not just for the Capital One Cup final but for the rest of the season because, for me, he is one of the top five players in the world. He has been unlucky this season to have some injuries. He has had two long injuries but when he’s fully fit, he is a player who can make the difference.”
“I’m sure Negredo and Dzeko will recover their normal performance level. Alvaro is coming back from a shoulder injury, which has bothered him a lot.
“Dzeko didn’t play very well, but I trust in all of them to continue scoring goals, with the exception of Jovetic, who is injured.”
