BARCELONA (AP) — Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero underwent surgery on his left knee in Barcelona on Wednesday and said the operation “went well,” although it remains unclear whether he'll play again this season.

The club’s all-time leading scorer hobbled off at the end of the first half of City’s 5-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League on Monday.

The Argentina striker posted a photo and statement on Twitter after his surgery, which was overseen by Dr. Ramon Cugat.

“Everything went well, and I'll soon begin recovery,” the 32-year-old said in his tweet. “A big thanks to Dr Cugat and his team — and to all of you for your support.”

City, which has not given a time frame for Aguero’s return, has eight more Premier League games but is in second place 20 points behind Liverpool. It is also in the FA Cup, which resumes at the quarterfinal stage next weekend.

Meanwhile, City is still involved in the Champions League, which will restart at the last-16 stage in August. The team leads Real Madrid 2-1 after the first leg in Spain.

Aguero’s absence leaves City with just one recognized striker, Gabriel Jesus, as the team works to negotiate its way through a hectic schedule following the resumption of soccer after the coronavirus outbreak.
