Man City striker Aguero to miss rest of season

Man City striker Aguero to miss rest of season

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has undergone a knee surgery and faces a race to be fit in time for Argentina's World Cup campaign.

Aguero, who flew to Barcelona for consultation with Dr Ramon Cugat last week, went under the knife on Monday to address cartilage damage.

Having seen City win the Premier League with five games to spare at the weekend, the 29-year-old made a decision to have the operation immediately in order to give him enough time to recover ahead of the tournament.

City skipper Vincent Kompany spoke in the aftermath of United's defeat against West Brom of his determination to see Pep Guardiola's charges create a trophy-winning dynasty at the club, and Aguero concurs.

Launch of NASA's TESS planet-hunter postponed to April 18
A new satellite, set to launch today, is expected to find thousands more planets outside of our solar system, known as exoplanets. Satellite maker Orbital ATK's Robert Lockwood said he expects Tess to take exoplanet discovery to a whole new level.

Aguero said: "Recovering from an arthroscopy on my knee".

Aguero has scored 30 times in all competitions for newly-crowned Premier League champions City despite recently spending a month on the sidelines with a knee problem. He didn't give a timescale for his return, saying only he is "fully motivated to get back soon to the field".

Argentina launch their campaign against Iceland on June 16 before two more group games against Croatia and Nigeria.

Aguero has not started a game since City's victory over Chelsea on March 4, although he was an unused substitute against Basel on March 7.
