Aguero, Toure, Nasri, Silva among Manchester City’s roster for Toronto FC friendly


Sergio Aguero was omitted from the early roster list, but has flown to Toronto for City’s postseason tour along with his Argentine teammates Pablo Zabaleta and Martin Demichelis.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini will then withhold that trio from the club’s following match in Houston, substituting Fernando and Fernandinho.

Brandon Barker, Bersant Celina, George Evans, Seko Fofana, Manu Garcia, Pablo Maffeo, Olivier Ntcham and Jose Angel Pozo will also be with City from the club’s Elite Development Squad.
