Cape Town - Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling could be out of action for up to eight weeks due to a groin injury, the BBC reported.

The 21-year-old, signed from Liverpool for a British record £49m last year, was hurt during the Manchester derby defeat by United on Sunday.

He will miss City's Champions League quarter-final against Paris St Germain and will need to prove his fitness to play for England in the European Championship starting in June.
