Aguero twisted his right knee in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Southampton, and City officials want him to rest until mid-September.
“It is impossible,” the Italian said. “Sergio needs a minimum of two weeks without training and maybe two weeks [of training before] he can play again. He can’t go.”
• Late-night Liga: It’s no secret that Spaniards like to dine late and tend to be night owls, but the new 11 p.m. starts for some La Liga games is not going over well with fans, players or team officials. At a game last week, one fan held up a poster that read: “I hate modern football. I hate television.” Some fans at the Malaga-Mallorca match were planning to wear pajamas to the game as a protest. The new kickoff time is the result of a dispute with Spanish cable TV providers.
• Strikers add Tetteh: The Fort Lauderdale Strikers (8-8-7) are in fourth place in the NASL standings heading into the tail end of the season. On Friday, they added Ghanian midfielder Michael Tetteh on loan from the Seattle Sounders in an effort to bolster the attack down the home stretch.
“Michael’s an exciting attacking player. He’s a left-sided guy but can also play on the right. I feel like he’ll fit in right away with our group,” Strikers coach Daryl Shore said. “We have a very good locker room, and everything we’ve heard about Michael is that he’s a team player.
“He’s excited to get down here and help our team try and win a championship.”
Their next home game is Sept. 1 against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
