Aguero broke rib in car crash in Netherlands
Manchester City’s Argentine striker Sergio Aguero has suffered a broken rib in a road accident in the Netherlands and will miss Saturday’s Premier League game at Chelsea, the club’s manager Pep Guardiola said.
The 29-year-old, who has scored six goals in six league appearances this season, was in Amsterdam on his day off and was the passenger in a taxi that crashed into a streetlight.
“He cannot play tomorrow,” Guardiola said, adding that Aguero could also be unable to play for Argentina in their coming World Cup qualifiers. “We have the first impressions of what he has, he’s broken the rib. But exactly how many days he will be off, I don’t know right now.”
Premier League leaders City, who face champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, had already been dealt an injury blow this week when scans showed defender Benjamin Mendy has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
