Sergio AGÜERO has claimed he is knee problem free while also supporting Gonzalo HIGUAÍN and questioning Alejandro GOMEZ.
After years of injuries, the Argentina National Team might finally see a fresh and fully fit AGÜERO. After undergoing surgery and with risks of him not being able to play, AGÜERO is confident he’ll be ready. Speaking with TyC Sports, here’s what he had to say:
“After five years, my knee feels like new. I have been suffering with knee problems since 2013. I tried to make an effort to play in the Champions League [against Liverpool]. I’ve always had problems but now I feel different, I can bend it and it’s a relief.
“Pep [GUARDIOLA] supported me a lot. I talked with the doctors and I said that if I didn’t have surgery, I could lose [the chance to play] the World Cup.”
The Manchester City man also supported Gonzalo HIGUAÍN after the Juventus hitman was under fire:
“HIGUAÍN has to stay calm, we will support him.”
AGÜERO also mentioned Lucas BIGLIA receiving a hit from fellow Argentine Alejandro GOMEZ and what he would have done had he been in BIGLIA’s place.
“If I were BIGLIA, I’d be angry. I would have waited for him in the tunnel and just let it all out. I would ask him if he had bad intentions or not.”
As we reported earlier on Thursday, AGÜERO is back training with the Argentina National Team.
