Mancini concerned about Aguero

Published Add your comment

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has admitted he is "worried" about Sergio Aguero after his star striker was stretchered out of their 3-2 Barclays Premier League victory over Southampton.

Aguero fell awkwardly following an early challenge by Nathaniel Clyne. It was quickly obvious the Argentina forward was in some considerable pain and although he indicated a desire to continue, medical staff quickly decided the damage to his knee would make it impossible.

Mancini confirmed it will be 48 hours before City can make a proper diagnosis. However, as with all such injuries, the fear Aguero may have damaged his cruciate ligaments is obvious.

"I am worried," admitted the Italian. "We don't know how serious it is because we need to wait maybe two days for the scan. But usually the knee is dangerous."
