Man City play down Aguero injury fears

Manchester City assistant manager Ruben Cousillas has moved to play down concerns about the fitness of Sergio Aguero, who was forced off at half time at Barcelona on Wednesday, BBC Sport has reported.

Aguero was ineffective in the first half at the Nou Camp, touching the ball on just six occasions before a hamstring problem ensured that he would only last 45 minutes. Edin Dzeko came on for the second half and helped make Man City more of a threat, but the Bosnian striker could not initiate an historic Champions League comeback.


Instead, Lionel Messi capitalised on an error by Joleon Lescott to give the Spanish club a 3-0 aggregate lead after a spell of Man City pressure. Pablo Zabaleta was then sent off for two bookings before Vincent Kompany equalised from a corner. However, Barcelona were to have the final say as Daniel Alves forced the ball home following a counter-attack.


And after the game, attention quickly turned to the fitness of Aguero, who could now miss some of the crucial Premier League games ahead of Man City. Despite that, Cousillas does not believe the Argentine has a serious injury. He said: "We don't think it's anything serious. He felt some muscle pain but it was more a precaution than anything else."


"It's too early to know how long he'll be out. We'll do some tests to assess the injury."


Cousillas replaced Manuel Pellegrini at the post-match press conference, after the manager was forced to watch the game from the stand, due to his comments about referee Jonas Eriksson after the first leg.
