After spending four months on the sidelines due to a knee injury, Sergio Agüero returned to the pitch in Manchester City’s 1-0 victory over Arsenal on October 17th. 

Since then, he made two more appearances before picking up another injury against West Ham United over the weekend. 

Pep Guardiola was forced to take the striker off after the first half due to a hamstring injury and the Citizens manager admitted he is unsure how long the 32-year-old will be out of action. 

According to the Argentine edition of AS, Agüero’s latest setback has been a concern for the technical staff of La Albiceleste.

Argentina contacted the Premier League side to find out the extent of the player’s injury and the initial examinations conducted by City were ‘not positive’.

Lionel Scaloni’s men take on Paraguay and Peru in World Cup qualifiers in November.

Although it’s not clear when the attacker will be back in action, the report states it is ‘difficult’ for him to be fit enough to make it for the next month’s international fixtures. 

Guardiola’s side will face Marseille, Sheffield United, Olympiacos and Liverpool before November’s international break and if AS’ report is to be believed, Agüero is set to miss these four fixtures for City.

Manchester City take on Marseille tomorrow and Guardiola could provide a further update on his player’s injury during the pre-match press conference on Monday.
