Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has confirmed on his twitter account that he will be out for two weeks with a knee injury.
Aguero will miss Monday’s match at Stoke City as well as Argentina’s friendly internationals against Italy and Spain.
"During yesterday’s training I had a discomfort on my left knee,” Aguero said on Twitter. "The club’s doctors told me I’ll be back with the team in approximately two weeks. Now it’s time for a full recovery!”
City’s only other out-and-out senior striker Gabriel Jesus returned to action in late February after suffering knee ligament damage against Crystal Palace on New Year’s Eve.
Argentina will play Italy at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on March 23 and then face Spain in Madrid four days later as part of their World Cup preparations.
