Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that forward Sergio Aguero will be fit for the second leg Champions League quarter-final match against French Champions Paris Saint-Germain, despite limping out of Saturday’s 2-1 win over West Brom.
Aguero left the field with an apparent injury in the closing stages after leveling scores with a penalty.
However, manager Manuel Pellegrini subsequently revealed the issue was nothing more than an impact injury and Aguero will be available for Tuesday’s visit of PSG, with whom City are locked at 2-2 on aggregate.
“Kun had just a kick – it’s not a problem for Tuesday,” he said.
The manager also spoke about match-winner Samir Nasri who made his first start since September after recovering from a thigh injury, scored City’s winner.
“It’s very strange to have six months out with a muscle injury but he worked very well to come back, he returned sooner than the doctors expected so I was very impressed that he could play the full 90 minutes with so many months without playing,” he added.
“He’s a very important player and I’m very happy for him today.”
Manchester City maintain fourth spot on the Premier league table after the win against West Brom at the Etihad.
