I would 'love' Lionel Messi to join Manchester City - Sergio Aguero

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could make surprise return just two weeks after car accident

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could make surprise return just two weeks after car accident

The striker could now be available for their weekend's game against Stoke City, a very positive news for Pep Guardiola, particularly as Gabriel Jesus is only expected to return from worldwide duty on Thursday (12 October).

"He did his first training session after what happened and he did it quite well", he said. "Unfortunately it was long open, but now it is closed", Guardiola told reporters on Friday.

"Hopefully as soon as possible he will be back".

Aguero went to Twitter in order to quell fears over his injury and his swift recovery will come as a major boost for Guardiola, who can now take a lead over Manchester United, should the Red Devils drop points on their visit to Anfield on Saturday ( 14 October).

He said: "The big problem we have is Mendy - six months out". We will see about January. It's a big problem for us.

"He is not 100 per cent but he is quite well".

"He explained what happened".

"We'll suffer even though we have the exceptional Fabian, Danilo, and even Zinchenko. Mendy was and is so important for us and six months a long time".

The news was less encouraging for club captain Vincent Kompany, whose latest calf injury setback remains on ongoing process.

That outstanding set of results were good enough for Guardiola to get the Manager of the Month nod ahead of fellow nominees Jose Mourinho (Manchester United), Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham) and Arsene Wenger (Arsenal). Maybe on Saturday - today we're going to see the last training session and we'll see. "He'll notice how he feels and when he'll be able".
