Aguero allays injury fears

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has moved to calm fears of another injury lay-off after he was forced off in Saturday's win over Southampton.

The Argentina international has endured his share of injury absences in recent seasons and only just returned from six-weeks out with a hamstring injury.

Shortly before he was due to be subbed in the 3-1 win over the Saints, the 27-year-old limped off the field with an apparent foot injury.

Reports on Monday suggested Aguero would miss around 10 days, and thus sitting out games against Hull City, Stoke City and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Aguero, though, described the injury as 'harmless' in a post on his official Twitter account, but stopped short of placing a date on his return.

"For everyone asking, I'm fine," he tweeted. "It's just a harmless bump on the heel. Thanks, all of you, for the support!"
