Sergio Aguero could miss the remainder of the Champions League season as Manchester City’s quest for the title becomes blur as they will now play without their 254-goal record scorer.
The Argentine has been out of action for about for about seven weeks after having knee surgery towards the end of June.
Friends of the striker have admitted that the player hinted to them that he was not sure about being part of the European mini-tournament in Portugal.
The Citizens have a herculean one-off quarterfinal game against Lyon on Saturday, August 15, however team manager Pep Guardiola wants Aguero to be in the stands.
Aguero has personally ruled himself out of the game against Lyon and there are chances that he won’t even be ready a week later when the Champions League final will be played – that’s if they qualify.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid fans have vented their anger on players and the manager after a dismal performance in their 2-1 defeat against Manchester City.
Los Blancos were outclassed by the Citizens who created many chances in the match but failed to make it count.
And the Madridsta's took to the club's official Facebook page to lash out at the manager Zinedine Zidane who kept the inefficient Eden Hazard on the pitch for too long.
One fan said: "It's not because we lost, but because we could win. We had a team to solve the mistakes there was, but what Hazard did 83 minutes in court."
Another fan added about his time in making substitutions: "Zidane on the margins of mistakes can't be scored in the 68th minute and need to score 2 goals to win and with the team destroyed don't make changes until 83 minutes."
