‘Dizzy spell’ for Aguero
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”.
