Man City striker Aguero plays down injury concern

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has eased fears he was facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after being stretchered off against Southampton, the BBC has reported. The Premier League champions were opening their campaign against the newly-promoted side but had to do without Aguero for much of the match after he was injured in the first-half.

Aguero had to leave the field after only eight minutes following a challenge by Saints right-back Nathaniel Clyne. The game was goalless at that point only to spring into life later, with City running out 3-2 winners. Aguero was replaced by Edin Dzeko, who later found the back of the net to level the scores at 2-2.

Revealing on Twitter that the incident was not as bad as first feared, Aguero said the tackle was a “tough hit” but that there was “no significant injury.” Aguero left the field on his feet, albeit in clear discomfort, before he was helped onto the stretcher and carried away.
