(Reuters) - Manchester City's new signing Martin Demichelis will be sidelined for around six weeks with a knee injury sustained in training, the English Premier League team said on Friday.
"The club doctor confirmed a scan last night revealed ligament damage but that surgery was not required," City said on their website.
Argentine Demichelis, who only left Atletico Madrid on Sunday, joins a growing list of injured defenders at City who are also without Vincent Kompany and Micah Richards.
