Sergio Aguero out of action for the rest of the season

- Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will not play any game again this season due to injury

- The Argentine forward has confirmed it on his official Twitter page

- Aguero is now battling to be fit before the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russia

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been ruled out for the rest of the ongoing Premier League season and now battling to be fit for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The news of his injury is not expected to be a blow for Manchester City considering the fact that they have won the Premier League title and they are also out of the Champions League.

Aguero tweeted that he had undergone the procedure and said he was fully focused on making a swift recovery in time for the World Cup with Argentina.

The striker who is currently on 199 City goals, missed their 2-0 win at Stoke on March 12, as well as their 3-0 defeat in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie away to Liverpool on April 7.

He suffered the injury in his side's defeat against Manchester United after being tackled by Ashley Young.

Sergio Agüero began his career at Independiente, and on 5 July 2003, he became the youngest player to debut in the Argentine Primera División at 15 years and 35 days, breaking the record previously established by Diego Maradona in 1976.

In 2006, Agüero moved to Europe to play for La Liga side Atlético Madrid for a transfer fee of €23 million.

The 29-year-old forward moved to Premier League club Manchester City in July 2011 for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £35 million.
