Manchester City’s Sergio Agüero reportedly involved in car accident, set to miss Chelsea game



Manchester City have confirmed that Agüero has sustained injuries, but are not commenting on the extent of them until they do their own assessment.


News filtering out from the Netherlands late last night, by way of reporters on the Argentinian National Team beat, that Manchester City striker Sergio Agüero has been involved in a car accident. Agüero was a passanger in a taxi that collided head-on with a lamppost. Fortunately, the 29-year-old was wearing his seatbelt, as we all should, and thus escaped with just a fractured rib.

Apparently, Agüero was in Amsterdam to attend a concert by an artist named Maluma — surprising that he would be allowed to attend in the middle of a busy fixture list, it should be said — and the accident happened after the event. Agüero, who has six goals in his last five games in all competitions (despite missing a penalty on Tuesday), is expected to be out least a month, if not two or more.

While Agüero has had more than his fair share of goals and five-second angries and other evil shenanigans against Chelsea and Chelsea players (especially David Luiz), we wish him a speedy recovery.
