Sergio Aguero will likely miss Argentina’s final World Cup qualifiers.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero suffered a fractured rib in a car crash in the Netherlands, sources told ESPN Sur.
Aguero, 29, was a passenger in a taxi en route to the airport in Amsterdam after attending a concert on Thursday night put on by Maluma, a Colombian singer, when the driver lost control of the vehicle and hit a column on the side of the road.
The sources said that Aguero could miss six to eight weeks because of the injury, which would initially rule him out for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Chelsea and a crucial pair of World Cup qualifiers for Argentina next week.
The news comes on the heels of another injury setback for Manchester City, who revealed on Thursday that defender Benjamin Mendy could be out for the remainder of the season after rupturing knee ligaments. See photos below…
