Roy Keane Slams Sergio Aguero For Being 'Overweight' After Returning From Injury

Roy Keane Slams Sergio Aguero For Being 'Overweight' After Returning From Injury

Roy Keane took no prisoners on Sky Sports this afternoon and slammed Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero for returning from injury 'overweight' earlier this season.

The Argentine hasn't been in City's last four squads due to a hamstring issue and missed Sunday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Prior to that, he'd been out with a knee injury and returned to action not looking at his best.

But Keane had no sympathy for the 32-year-old and wasn't impressed with his conditioning.

"My issue with Aguero when he came back, he looked overweight," he begun. "God knows what size shorts he was wearing but he did look really heavy!

"Sometimes you can be out injured, come back and hit the ground running. This idea that players need two or three months to get back to speed, I was worried when he came back.

"I think he looks really, really heavy."

Fellow pundit Micah Richards defended former teammate Aguero and argued: "I think it's because he's been rushed back though.

"You know every time it's like 'Oh where is Aguero let's get him back' and you know what it's like.

"Sometimes you're not even fully fit, being rushed back and getting judged on the pitch. You know you're not really up to speed, but you've got to get up to speed."

In typical fashion, Keane bluntly replied: "It's difficult to get up to speed, but don't be piling on the pounds."

Liverpool took the lead through a Mohamed Salah penalty, after Kyle Walker hauled down Sadio Mane in the box.

Keane had stern words for the England international, who he dubbed an 'idiot' and car crash at full-back.

Gabriel Jesus netted the equaliser and Kevin De Bruyne had a chance to win the game with a penalty of his own, but he put it wide of the post.

After the game, Keane was quizzed on if he'd rather player under Pep Guardiola at City, or work under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

His response? Exactly what you'd expect from a former Manchester United captain.

"I probably wouldn't want to play for any of them because that means I have to play for Liverpool or Man City."

Never change, Roy.
