Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has admitted that he cannot afford to rush himself back from his hamstring injury, Sky
The Argentine initially suffered from the problem during his side’s 5-1 win away to Tottenham at the end of January. He then returned for the Capital One Cup final and the second leg of Man City’s last 16 tie with Barcelona, but was forced off at half time at the Nou Camp due to a similar complaint.
Aguero is keen to return with Man City vying for the Premier League title, but has conceded that he cannot rush himself back in case he aggravates a more serious injury that can not only rule him out for the rest of the season, but for this summer’s World Cup.
The former Atletico Madrid star said: “With this recovery I am trying to do my best to be able to play again, but I cannot do it in a hurry. I do think to myself if something happens now, I will lose the rest of the Premier League season and the World Cup.”
He also rejected the possibility of leaving Man City in the summer, adding: “He (manager Manuel Pellegrini) says to me that I can’t leave without winning a Champions League. That’s the objective of each player in Europe.”
