Man City boost? Sergio Aguero ‘in danger’ of being left out of next Argentina squad

Man City boost? Sergio Aguero ‘in danger’ of being left out of next Argentina squad

Sergio Aguero lacking minutes

Manchester City have once again been one of the most dominant sides in England this season.

The Sky Blues are already in the League Cup final, and going strong in both the FA Cup and Champions League.

As for the Premier League, City have lost just twice all season, and currently sit 15 points clear of 2nd spot as they march towards a 3rd league title in four years.

Somewhat surprisingly, though, Pep Guardiola’s men have achieved almost all of this without the services of Sergio Aguero.

The forward has spent the majority of the season to date sidelined through injury.

And though he recently returned, the 32-year-old has continued to struggle for minutes.

Across the Citizens’ last five Premier League outings, Aguero has been left on the bench on four occasions, managing just 61 minutes of action vs West Ham last month.

Aguero to miss out on upcoming internationals

And now, it seems as though Aguero’s struggles to regain a regular starting berth are set to impact him on an international level.

According to The Times, Aguero is in danger of being left out of the next Argentina squad because of his lack of game time.

The latest international break will kick off at the end of March, with Argentina set for clashes with Uruguay and Brazil.

And though Aguero may not be too pleased with missing out on these games, it could be beneficial for Man City.

This is, of course, because the majority of the Citizens’ stars will likely end up linking up with their respective countries, and playing a couple of games. And, at the business end of the season, with City still likely to be fighting in four competitions, that isn’t really what they need.

In the case of Aguero, though, the Manchester giants may be handed a chance to help rebuild his fitness/keep him fresh whilst everyone else is playing for their countries.
