Aguero: Against Barca I'll Be Ready

Manchester City star Sergio Aguero is hoping to rediscover his blistering form ahead of next month’s Champions League clash up against Barcelona.

The Argentine striker made a welcome return from injury and scored with his first touch as he came off the bench in City's 5-0 third-round replay victory on Wednesday.

"I couldn't wait to come back," he told the club's official website.

"It's been a great recovery. I am very happy for the goal and also happy for the warm welcome of my team-mate and fans.”

"And also, I'd like to thank the medical staff and the physios who did a great job,” the Argentina international added.

"I trained with the team on Monday for the first time and today (Wednesday) I played some minutes to start bringing myself back on form and find my pace to play in such a fast football game.”

"Maybe in a week I'll be on top form. Obviously, the more you play the better you feel. I hope I can play a little bit longer on Saturday and take it step by step.”

"Against Barca I'll be ready. We still have time and first we have to think about the next Premier League games which are very important, and then we'll think about Barca."
