Sergio Aguero has explained exactly what happened during Amsterdam collision

Manchester City v Crystal Palace - Premier League

Manchester City are out of luck when it comes to injuries at the moment.

Less than 24 hours after Benjamin Mendy was effectively ruled out for the season with an ACL rupture, Sergio Aguero was involved in a road traffic accident in Amsterdam. 

The Argentine forward was attending a performance by Colombian singer Maluma.

Furthermore, Pep Guardiola has since confirmed that Aguero will indeed be ruled out for the next two months. It's a huge blow to City with the 29-year-old leading the Premier League goal scoring charts and closing in on the club scoring record.

The pressure will be transferred to Gabriel Jesus who will have to lead the line against Chelsea on Sunday at just age 20.

More and more information is beginning to emerge about Aguero's accident, too, after initial reaction questioned why the player was out the country two days before a game. Richard Keys even sprinkled some of his own controversy on the situation.

Guardiola has explained why this was the case in his most recent press conference, stating: "We have enough rules.

"I want the players to be happy ... If he decides to go there, it's OK for me".


And  Aguero himself was able to talk about the incident, from his hospital bed in the Dutch capital - explaining what happened before and after the crash.

Speaking to Radio Metro de Argentina, the 29-year-old recalled: "The taxi driver did not see the curve and skid. And when he skidded, we hit him with the pole.

"I broke my rib, now I'm resting. It hurts me badly. I'll be discharged in a little while."

So, thankfully, Aguero's stay in hospital is soon to expire. However, the heeling process from a broken rib will certainly be lengthly and further appearances in 2017 could be few in number.

He looks set to miss 11-games and a number of key World Cup qualifiers that could see Lionel Messi absent from Russia 2018.


Nevertheless, everyone is associated with the game is simply thankful for Aguero's wellbeing and City's strength in depth will afford him all the recovery he needs.
