‘He looked overweight, God knows what size shorts he was wearing’: Roy Keane accuses Sergio Aguero of ‘piling on the pounds’ while recovering from injury after Man City striker missed Liverpool clash
- Aguero suffered setback in his third game after recovering from knee injury
- The 32-year-old was not risked and missed Sunday’s clash with Liverpool
- City have been operating without a specialist centre forward in recent weeks
The 32-year-old Argentine suffered a hamstring injury in his third appearance on his return from a knee injury he suffered in June, which ruled him out of the Premier League run-in and resumption of the Champions League knockout stage.
The Blues have been operating without a specialist centre forward in recent weeks after Aguero and Gabriel Jesus were ruled out by injury.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero returned for 45 minutes against West Ham (above) but hasn’t played since and missed Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool
Jesus scored on his return to starting line-up against Liverpool on Sunday but Aguero was not risked in the 1-1 draw.
Manchester United legend Keane had little sympathy for Aguero.
He told Sky Sports: ‘My issue with Aguero when he came back was he looked overweight.
‘God knows what size shorts he was wearing. He did look really heavy
Roy Keane slammed Aguero for returning from injury ‘looking really, really heavy’
‘Sometimes you can be out injured and hit the ground running
‘This idea that players need two or three months to get up to speed. I was worried when he came back he looked really, really heavy.’
Former City defender Micah Richards said Aguero may have rushed back before he was fully fit in a bid to help out the team.
Keane added: ‘It’s difficult to get up to speed, but don’t be piling on the pounds.’
