The Argentine further highlighted his struggle with the ongoing injury and said he will not recover as well immediately.
Manchester City talisman Sergio Aguero has called for time to get back to his best as he revealed he is still struggling with a knee injury despite his recent return to the first team.
The 32-year-old has only made three starts in six appearances across all competitions this season and seems to be a week-to-week recommendation with how healthy he is.
Aguero played 37 minutes together in the games against Marseille and West Brom but was missing from the squad against Manchester United derby rivals between his two recent appearances.
The Argentine international spoke about his problems with his knee and said it would take time for him to get back into peak shape.
“It’s sad,” Aguero said The sun. “Sometimes my knee is good, sometimes a little bad. I do everything to help the physio and medical staff to improve.
“I need some time but I came back in a week, and I hope to be at my best. Now I need time, but it ‘s a long season.”
Aguero’s sporadic appearance in the first team has coincided with an inconsistent form of form for Manchester City, who are currently ninth in the Premier League, eight points behind Liverpool leaders but with a game in hand. .
However, the striker believes City can still figure in the league title race and that an explosion of good form will get the team back near the top of the table.
“I know it’s sad because the results weren’t good,” Aguero said.
“We always believe [we can challenge for the title]. In the Premier League, you win two games and then you are close to the top.
“We have to be calm, play the same way, because Man City are always fighting for the titles, always.”
