‘Dizzy spell’ for Aguero

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

SER­GIO Aguero is set for a med­i­cal check-up at Manch­ester City af­ter be­ing tak­ing un­well at half-time in Ar­gentina’s friendly against Nige­ria.

The club have moved to ease wor­ries about their record scorer’s health and at this stage have not ruled him out of Satur­day’s Pre­mier League game against Le­ices­ter.

But Aguero will be as­sessed by City when he ar­rives back in Manch­ester, hav­ing been given the go-ahead to fly just hours af­ter be­ing taken to hospi­tal.

The Ar­gen­tine Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion said Aguero fainted at the break dur­ing yes­ter­day’s 4-2 de­feat against Nige­ria in the Rus­sian city of Krasnodar.

How­ever, City stated he was al­ways con­scious.

The 29-year-old striker scored af­ter 36 min­utes in Krasnodar to put Ar­gentina 2-0 ahead, but did not come out for the sec­ond half and his team-mates lost their way on the pitch.

The Ar­gen­tine fed­er­a­tion said in a Twit­ter post that Aguero fainted and was taken for “rou­tine checks just as a pre­cau­tion”.
