Aguero broke rib in car crash in Nether­lands

Global Times - Weekend - - SPORTS -

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.
