Man City forward Sergio Aguero confirms rib injury

Man City forward Sergio Aguero confirms rib injury”

Manchester City's prolific Argentinian striker suffered a broken rib in a road accident in Amsterdam on Thursday and is expected to be out for between two and four weeks.

Aguero attended a concert in Amsterdam on Thursday evening and was on his way to the airport for a private flight back to Manchester when the taxi he was traveling in crashed into a lamppost. "It was a very heavy slam, but seatbelts prevented it from being worse".

Aguero has made an impressive start to the 2017-18 campaign, scoring seven goals in eight games for Pep Guardiola's men. The injury could also put Aguero in jeopardy for worldwide appearances with Argentina. "I am a trainer who doesn't want to train every day because they to rest, mentally and physically". They can enjoy their lives. I don't want to know what my players do. "If he decides to go there, that's OK with me". "It is OK for me".

If the news is true, Aguero would face an extended spell on the sidelines, effectively ruling him out of City's clash at Stamford Bridge as well as Argentina's do-or-die World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador next month. Two people were taken to the hospital. "We did not hear back further about their condition".

Aguero's former club Independiente sent the player their best wishes on Twitter, saying: "Strength and speedy recovery @aguerosergiokun! All Independiente is with you in this hard time".

The Aguero blow comes after City discovered this week that France defender Benjamin Mendy ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in last weekend's win over Crystal Palace.

Guardiola said: "He will be out until our semi-finals of the Champions League".

City captain Vincent Kompany is also some way off returning from injury, despite being named in Belgium's squad.

"No way. He didn't make one training session with us since a month ago", he said.

"Of course, he can not play with Belgium".

"I'm home in Manchester after an exam by club Drs".

The worldwide break follows the weekend's Premier League matches with Aguero in Argentina's squad for their last two World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador on October 5 and 10.

Argentina are fifth in the South American section standings, which only guarantees a play-off place.

The striker, whose side are above Manchester United on goal difference, needs only two more goals to pass Eric Brook as City's all-time leading scorer and is widely viewed as one of the world's most feared strikers.
