Sergio Aguero will be out for 10 weeks with a calf injury, FC Barcelona have confirmed.
The Argentinian who joined Barcelona in May as a free agent is yet to play for the la Liga giant with a recurring calf injury which hampered the latter stage of his City career and he will be sidelined till at least late October and in the process Barca fans will have to wait till then to see him in action for the first time (Barca debut).
Fresh off the news of Leo messi’s exit, Barca forward plans has taken a huge blow by the news of Agüero’s injury, Ronald Koeman already had both Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele out injured. Philippe Coutinho is now back, but he was ruled out of the game against Juventus as well with their laliga campaign starting in less than 6days against Real Sociedad.
Barcelona released a statement on Agüero saying: “Tests carried out on first-team player Kun Aguero have confirmed a right calf injury. He will be out around ten weeks,”
Barcelona boss had to speak about Aguero’s condition last night, admitting his disappointment with the injury.
“It’s a pity that he’s injured,” Koeman said. “We have to wait for him to recover but it’s a step backwards because he had been training well.
The club and fans will hope he comes back stronger in October and stay injury-free till the end of the campaign.
