Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has insisted that he will not rush his return from injury due to fears of missing out at the World Cup for Argentina.

The 25-year-old has been out of action since aggravating a hamstring injury during City's Champions League exit to Barcelona on March 12.

"With this recovery I am trying to do my best to be able to play again, but I cannot do it in a hurry," Aguero told DirecTV.

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

Aguero has not featured in a league fixture since the end of January.
