Sergio Aguero undergoes knee surgery

Aguero has scored 30 goals in all competitions this season

Manchester City's latest Premier League triumph lacked the drama of Sergio Aguero's victor with virtually the last kick of the season in 2012, but the Argentine is relieved to have won the title with five games to spare.

In a minute-long film some may find cringeworthy, City players including Sergio Aguero and Phil Foden are seen celebrating on the pitch after the title-clinching game.

"Aguero visited Dr Cugat last Thursday and they decided yesterday that the surgery in his meniscus was the best option. Fully motivated to get back soon to the field", Aguero said.

Ag├╝ero has been troubled by the problem in his left knee for several weeks and was a pale shadow of his normal self as City tumbled out of the Champions League, missing the first-leg defeat by Liverpool and only making the bench for the return fixture.

Aguero, meanwhile, is relieved that there will be no nerve-jangling at City this season after wrapping up the Premier League title with five games to spare.

The 29-year-old has not started a match since City's 1-0 victory against Chelsea in the Premier League on March 4. Again, he was only able to appear as a second-half substitute.
