LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo will miss the start of the new season and be sidelined for several months after breaking his foot in the Premier League champions' 2-1 pre-season win over Hearts in Edinburgh on Friday.
The 28-year-old Spain international, who did not go to the World Cup, said on Monday he had broken a metatarsal in his right foot.
"I want to let you know that its going to be hard for the next few months, I fractured my fifth metatarsal and will be out a few months," Negredo wrote on his Instagram account.
He also posted a photo of himself wearing a protective boot.
"I will be back stronger than ever. I will return with a vengeance," he added.
Negro scored 23 goals in the first 33 games he played for City in all competitions last season, but did not find the net in his last 16 matches.
