City confirm Aguero in car crash
Manchester City have confirmed striker Sergio Aguero was involved in a car crash in the Netherlands on Thursday. Unverified claims on Friday morning said the 29-year-old fractured a rib after the taxi in which he was travelling in Amsterdam struck a pillar.
Dutch police told Sky Sports News that two people were injured and taken to hospital, but would not confirm their names. However, City later confirmed that Aguero was one of the people involved. A club statement read: "Sergio Aguero will be assessed by club doctors today [Friday] after being involved in a road accident on Thursday. "The City forward was in Holland on his day off and has sustained injuries.
"He will return to Manchester this morning and his status will be checked ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash at Chelsea." Aguero had earlier posted a picture of himself with Colombian singer Maluma on his Instagram account. He was understood to have been attending Maluma's concert before the accident happened.
