When news emerged that Sergio Aguero had been involved in a car crash in Amsterdam on Thursday night, Manchester City fans were all asking the same thing: why on earth was he in Amsterdam?

The Argentine was reportedly on his way to the airport after watching Colombian singer Maluma's concert just two days before Saturday's trip to Chelsea.

There are rumours that he suffered a fractured rib in the accident and could be out for 6-8 weeks, which is bad news for City.

A club statement said: "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 tomorrow's Premier League clash at Chelsea."

City fans may be angry with Aguero for going to Amsterdam 48 hours before such an important game, but they'll be gutted if the rumours are true about his time on the sidelines.

Aguero has been in fantastic form this season, with his six goals firing the Citizens to the top of the Premier League.

Without him, 20-year-old Gabriel Jesus will have the difficult task of leading the attacking line all by himself.

Everyone has been wishing Aguero a speedy recovery on social media, but it's Richard Keys' tweet about the Argentina international that's caused the biggest stir.

In a pointless and frankly stupid post, the former Sky Sports presenter claimed a lot more fuss would have been made about the accident had it been Wayne Rooney involved.

Talk about heartless. Check out his tweet below.

Keys wrote: "Can you imagine the fuss had Wayne Rooney been in that taxi last night and not Aguero?"

There's no doubting more would have been made of a car accident involving Rooney, but given circumstances, does it really matter? Of course not.

As a result, football fans have been slamming Keys in the replies, especially given the recent controversy surrounding Rooney and his drink driving.
