According to several sources in the Spanish media, Sergio Agüero suffered a right hamstring injury in Atlético’s 3-0 victory over Osasuna on Saturday.
The Argentine, who scored Atleti’s second goal of the match, was substituted in the 78th minute after feeling a “strong contracture” in the back of his right leg.
Daniel Hidalgo of AS reports via Twitter that the club doesn’t seem too concerned about the strain, so it may have just been a scare.
Agüero is likely to miss out on Argentina’s midweek friendly against Brazil in Qatar, and it will be determined on Monday after he undergoes testing whether or not he will make it in time for our trip to Anoeta next weekend.
It will be a bitter pill to swallow should our wonderkid be forced to miss out another game, especially considering the chemistry rekindled with his strike partner Diego Forlán.
We’ll have you updated as soon as we have more details on the severity of the injury.
UPDATE: The club’s official website reports that Kun was submitted to an MRI exam on Sunday, a day earlier than initially planned. The examination revealed that the 22-year old sustained a Grade I-II hamstring pull. It has been confirmed that the forward will not travel to Qatar with Argentina, and he is a doubt for our upcoming match against Real Sociedad on Sunday.
