Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has shared a video of himself back on the training pitch for the first time since June.
The Argentinian international has been out of action with a knee injury since being substituted at half time in the 5-0 win against Burnley. It was hoped he would be back for the Champions League knockout rounds last month, but unfortunately, his recovery from surgery took longer than expected.
Aguero had to watch on as City were knocked out by Lyon at the quarter-final stages but he has returned to fitness now ahead of the new Premier League season. Fans on Twitter are very happy that the 32-year-old is back in contention:
The king is back 😭💙💙💙

The City legend’s return will be a massive boost for manager Pep Guardiola. His lethal touch in front of goal was badly missed in Portugal, and it will be hoped that the Argentine is ready to feature when the Citizens kick off their title challenge in a few weeks time.
