Lee has supported City for more than 21 years and so could hardly contain his disbelief at this incredible turn of events.

He said: “Sergio Aguero was literally the last person on earth I’d expect to see on my front-doorstep or in Stretford for that matter!”

“Getting the job at City was a dream come true as it was, let alone your hero coming to personally give your staff pass. It was a surprise I will never forget. ”

Manchester City's top scorer Sergio Aguero does not intend to take short cuts in his recovery from injury.

Aguero, who has scored 26 goals for City this term, has been out since suffering a hamstring injury in the Champions League loss at Barcelona on March 12.

It is his third setback of an otherwise outstanding season following previous calf and hamstring problems.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini hinted last week that Aguero could be fit to face Southampton this Saturday but the player himself - also crucial to Argentina's World Cup campaign - is cautious.

The 25-year-old told DirecTV: "With this recovery I am trying to do my best to be able to play again, but I cannot do it in a hurry.

"I do think to myself if something happens now, I will lose the rest of the Premier League season and the World Cup."

Manchester City's Aguero out for a month

The Argentina striker hobbled off during City's 5-1 Barclays Premier League win at Tottenham on Wednesday.

The injury will rule Aguero, who has scored 26 goals this season, out of the first leg of City's Champions League last-16 tie against Barcelona as well as Premier League and FA Cup games against Chelsea.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could be out for at least a month, according to manager Manuel Pellegrini.

The in-form Argentinian suffered a calf injury early in the second half of Saturday's impressive 6-3 defeat of Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.

City are not yet sure how long the 25-year-old could be out but among the games he is set to miss is the home clash with Liverpool on Boxing Day.

Pellegrini, asked at a press conference if Aguero might miss the Christmas programme, said: "I think he will be, at least, one month out.

"He has a calf injury. Maybe the doctor can say exactly how many weeks he will be."

His partnership with new signing Alvaro Negredo has also been prolific, with the Spaniard contributing 13 goals to the City cause.
