Sergio Aguero 'ready' for Man City return after Amsterdam crash

Sergio Aguero 'ready' for Man City return after Amsterdam crash

He said of Mendy: "He is a guy on the pitch who is so important but especially off the pitch, we were a good team last season and had good guys but we were quiet and I think he is a guy who can help us to make our lives happier".

However, the 29-year-old returned to training this week and insists he is ready to play, although he is unsure whether City boss Pep Guardiola will consider him for action against Stoke City on Saturday.

The manager said: "He is still injured. He'll notice how he feels and when he'll be able".

Despite Argentina's national team doctor Donato Villani advice to take a six-week long break before resuming the game, the striker was observed resuming light training on Tuesday, according to Sport24. The only problem we have - a big, big problem we have - is Mendy, six months out.

He also conceded that a decision to withdraw charges that was based exclusively on the timing of the indictment was irrational. He said it was hard to understand why the present regime at the NPA believed the decision could be defended.

"The transfer window is closed now, we will see if we can add in January", Guardiola said when fielding a question over Arsenal forward and long-time target Alexis Sanchez. "Unfortunately it was long open, but now it is closed". It's a big problem. We will see about January. We're going to suffer in this situation, even though we have Fabian (Delph), Danilo, (Oleksandr) Zinchenko. "We are in October".

Aguero is City's top-scorer with six goals in as many Premier League appearances for Pep Guardiola's side, who lead the standings on 19 points after seven fixtures.

City also boast an impressive record against Stoke, particularly on their own turf, as they have only lost one of their previous 11 home matches against the Potters.
