Mancini gives Aguero details

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini appeared to confirm Sergio Aguero's mystery foot injury was exacerbated by a pain-killing spray.

The Argentina striker has been missing as title-chasing City have dropped potentially vital points in their last two Barclays Premier League matches, including Saturday's 3-3 home draw against Sunderland. Mancini has been reluctant to discuss the problem, only referring to it as "stupid".

But the manager did appear to confirm reports that the player's skin reacted badly to a spray used to treat a knock and - when asked if the spray was involved - Mancini said: "Yes."
