Manchester City have confirmed striker Sergio Aguero was involved in a car crash in the Netherlands on Thursday.
Unverified claims on Friday morning said the 29-year-old fractured a rib after the taxi in which he was travelling in Amsterdam struck a pillar.
Dutch police said 2 people were injured and taken to hospital, but would not confirm their names.
However, City later confirmed that Aguero was one of the people involved.
In-form Aguero has made a strong start to the current season, netting 7 goals in all competitions, including a hat-trick at Watford earlier this month.
News of the accident comes at a bad time for Pep Guardiola’s side, who were already planning for their forthcoming fixtures without defender Benjamin Mendy, who has ruptured a ligament in his right knee.
