As Manchester City gear up for their FA semi-final clash against Chelsea this afternoon, manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that club legend Sergio Aguero is still unfit and will not take part (via football.london) – prompting many Sky Blues to react as this news emerges.
Aguero, who scored a brilliant looping header in City’s last FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea back in 2013, will not play today for Guardiola’s side as the boss confirms he is still not ready following his latest injury.
Bar the Argentine, every other member of the senior squad is fit and ready to do their part when called upon – with the Sky Blues still remarkably in contention for all four major trophies this season.
City edged past Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League second leg quarter final tie midweek and now take on the west Londoners in a bid to reach their second FA Cup final in three seasons.
Flocking to this injury news, which one fan called ‘sad’, Aguero not being able to feature does come as disappointing given his contract will be up at the end of the season and supporters may want to see as much of him as possible, especially in a knockout match such as this one, which is made for heroes to step up and be counted.
