BARCELONA: AGUERO RETURN DATE REVEALED
Barcelona fans have not had the opportunity to watch Sergio Aguero in a competitive game since he signed for the club in the summer. The petite Argentine striker returned to Spain to sign for the Catalan giants as a free agent this summer after a decade in English football.
Sergio Aguero signed for Premier League club Manchester City from Spanish champions Atletico Madrid in 2011 and he went on to win the first of many league titles in his debut season at the club. In total, Aguero won five league titles during his time at the Etihad Stadium. He was released by Manchester City at the end of last season thus bringing his 10-year stay at the club to an end.
Barcelona handed him a two-year contract when he signed for them but he has not made his debut due to a calf injury sustained in training in August. The calf injury ruled him out of the start of this season. He was expected to miss ten weeks of football action.
Aguero is nearing full fitness as he has been able to recover well from the calf injury with report from AS Diario claiming that he could make his debut when league football starts again later this month. The Argentine striker could play his first game for Catalan giants Barcelona when they take on Valencia at the Nou Camp after the October international break.
Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman is a man under pressure and he could do with the return of Aguero to his first team squad as the 33-year-old guarantees goals if he’s provided with quality service. Koeman can’t afford to lose the upcoming league outing at home to Valencia later this month. The return of Aguerofrom injury will most likely give Koeman and Barcelona a boost in attack.
