Man City star Sergio Aguero sends fans injury update after Carabao Cup win
Manchester City star Sergio Aguero has reassured fans that he’s okay, after appearing to take a knock during the Carabao Cup final. Pep Guardiola’s side beat Aston Villa to the first silverware of the season, after winning 2-1 at Wembley.
Aguero scored the opening goal of the game in the 20th minute, after converting Phil Foden’s headed down assist.
The striker almost scored his second goal of the game in the final 10 minutes of the match.
He latched onto a Bernardo Silva cross at the far post, but pulled his volley wide.
During the fray, Aguero collided with a Villa defender, and he stayed down clutching his shin.

Minutes later, he was replaced by Gabriel Jesus, and the forward hobbled off the pitch toward the dugout.
He was later spotted with an ice pack on his shin, but Aguero confirmed that it shouldn’t be a big problem.
“I’m okay,” Aguero told Sky Sports after the full-time whistle.
“It was just a kick on my knee. I’m fine.”
