English Premier League table toppers, Manchester City will be without key striker Sergio Kun Aguero, when they face rivals Manchester United later this month.
The 27-year-old was stretchered off during Argentina’s 2-0 loss to Ecuador on Thursday evening.
After visiting a Buenos Aires clinic on Friday, it was revealed that he suffered a hamstring tear and will be out of action for about 4 weeks.
When asked about the length of the time he will be out: “I think I’ll be a month without playing,” Aguero told TyC Sports.
“I’ll go to the AFA (Argentine Football Association) national team compound to carry on with treatment. To recover from the tear, I’ll surely need a month although it will depend how it evolves.
“I’d been playing very frequently and was in doubt (for Thursday’s match) until the last minute but as a player, you always want to be there and never know what can happen.”
Aguero is also likely to miss crucial back-to-back Champions League group stage games against Sevilla.
With this injury, Aguero joins the likes of Mario Gotze, Wayne Rooney, Bastian Schweinsteger and David Silva who were all injured during this international break.
