Man City boss Pellegrini: Aguero has knee ligament injury...

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini admits Sergio Aguero is out of their Champions League decider with AS Roma. Aguero suffered an apparent knee injury and left the pitch in tears during their 1-0 win over Everton.

Pellegrini agreed the loss is a major blow, especially with his side already missing a number of key names.

"It is impossible in this moment to know how long Sergio will be out," he asserted. "He has a problem with the ligament in his knee but tomorrow we will know better how serious it is.

"He will probably miss the game in Rome. We are not sure but it is very difficult when you have a problem with your ligament to recover in three days.

"It is a big problem because Sergio was in a very good moment and he is a decisive player for our team.

"We must also add Edin Dzeko is only just coming back from injury, David Silva is not ready and Stevan Jovetic also has a problem.

"To play such an important game without so many important players is a difficult challenge but I never complain. We have a squad and we will try to win on Wednesday to continue in the Champions League.

"With Stevan, we'll see tomorrow. We hope it's just a small problem in his hamstring and we will see what will happen with him."
