City star eyes CL comeback
Sergio Aguero is hopeful of returning from a knee injury in time for Manchester City's Champions League trip to Real Madrid on Tuesday.
The Argentina international has not featured for the Premier League champions since their opening game of the season against Southampton at the Etihad Stadium on August 19 when he was forced off with the problem. However, after it was confirmed that the injury was not as bad as first feared, Aguero has been working hard to get back to full fitness. And, with City's opening Group D clash against Jose Mourinho's Spanish champions at the Bernabeu approaching next week, Aguero is desperate to play. The former Atletico Madrid forward never tasted victory against Real during his five seasons playing in La Liga, but he hopes to break his duck with Roberto Mancini's men. "I was never on the winning side against them so let's hope with City we can beat them," Aguero said in the Daily Express. "It will be difficult. Right now Real and Barcelona are among the best teams in the world. But we have a great team too."
