Manchester City have confirmed that Sergio Aguero will return to England to be assessed by club doctors after being involved in a road accident. Report says the twenty-nine-year-old suffered a fractured rib in the car crash in the Netherlands.
Aguero could miss six to eight weeks because of the injury, which would initially rule him out for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Chelsea and a crucial pair of World Cup qualifiers for Argentina next week.
He was a passenger in a taxi en route to the airport in Amsterdam after attending a concert on Thursday night put on by Maluma, a Colombian singer, when the driver lost control of the vehicle and hit a column on the side of the road.
The news comes on the heels of another injury setback for Manchester City, who revealed on Thursday that defender Benjamin Mendy could be out for the remainder of the season after rupturing knee ligaments.
