Man City star Martin Demichelis facing six weeks out with knee injury
Manchester City have confirmed defender Martin Demichelis is set to be out of action for around six weeks due to a knee injury sustained in training.
A statement on City's official website said that a scan on the 32-year-old Argentinian had revealed ligament damage but that surgery is not required.
Centre-back Demichelis only joined the Blues on a two-year contract from Atletico Madrid on Sunday.
City already had defenders nursing injuries, with skipper Vincent Kompany currently sidelined by a groin problem and Micah Richards out with a hamstring complaint.
