Guardiola confirms Aguero rib blow

Guardiola confirms Aguero rib blow

Sergio Aguero has broken his silence after being involved in a vehicle crash on Thursday night.

English soccer team Manchester City will assess star player Sergio Aguero Friday after the Argentine was involved in a auto crash.

The 29-year-old sustained the injury after a taxi taking him to an Amsterdam airport following a music concert was involved in an accident on Thursday night.

Guardiola, after confirming the striker suffered a broken rib in a auto accident, added: "He had a day off".

Premier League - Follow the Football match between Chelsea and Manchester City live with Eurosport.

"Sergio Aguero will be assessed by Club doctors today after being involved in a road accident on Thursday", City said of the Argentina striker in a statement on their website.

Aguero is expected back in Manchester on Friday and will be examined by City's medical team before the Premier League trip to Chelsea on Saturday.

The global break follows the weekend's Premier League matches with Aguero in Argentina's squad for their last two World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador on October 5 and 10.

Leaders City travel to champions Chelsea on Saturday aiming to extend a run of seven consecutive wins in all competitions but their preparations have been dealt a double blow this week.

And the absence of Sergio Aguero only makes life harder for Guardiola's men. I want my players to have fun.

The incident left him with a broken rib.

On how his players spend their days off, he added: "I think they have to be happy. And when he skidded, we hit the [traffic light] pole", Aguero reportedly told Radio Metro.

Aguero has been in superb form for City this season and is one goal away from equalling the club's all-time leading scoring record of 178, held by Eric Brook.

However, if he can come up with match-winning moments against the defending Premier League champions then it may be hard for Guardiola to overlook prolonging his tenure as the number one striker.

"Bad news guys - I'll be joining Injury FC on loan for a couple months with ruptured ACL... but will be back soon and stronger hopefully", tweeted Mendy.
