Sergio Aguero Has Reportedly Been Involved In A Car Crash
There's worrying news for Manchester City fans as their inform striker Sergio Aguero is reported to have been in a car crash.
News outlets in his homeland, Argentina, have reported that he suffered fractured ribs from a nasty collision in the Netherlands, after attending a concert in Amsterdam.
City's number 10 was in a taxi heading to the airport when the driver hit a lamp post, Sky Sports News claim. Dutch police have also confirmed with Sky Sports that two other people were injured in the crash, but their names have not be revealed.
The forward's former club, Independiente, with whom he started his career at the age of nine, posted a picture of him on Twitter, wishing him well.
"Strength and prompt recovery. Everyone @ Independiente is with you in this difficult moment," the Tweet said.

The Argentinian has been in fine form this term with City, scoring six in the Premiere League, including an impressive hat-trick against Watford at Vicarage Road. He's also netted one in this year's Champions League campaign.
Aguero's efforts, along with the attacking power coming from Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva have catapulted Pep Guardiola's blues to the top of the Premiere League, where they're level on points with local rivals Manchester United, only ahead on goal difference.
This'll be bad news for fans, but good news for opposing teams, given he has a lengthy spell on the side lines. The Argentinian has been a thorn in the side of many teams since he joined The Citizens in 2011, helping capture the club's first PL trophy with a beyond-belief display on the final day of the season.
Manchester United, having secured a 1-0 win over Sunderland, believed the title was theirs. However, over at the Etihad, 2-1 down to relegation fighting Queen's Park Rangers, five minutes of stoppage time gave them hope.
Eden Dzeko leveled the game in the 92nd minute, before Mario Balotelli fed the ball to Aguero in the 95th, and the Argentine powered the ball home.
The celebrations were fierce as cameras switched to the United game, showing Sir Alex Ferguson ushering his players off the pitch.
The famous goal prompted perhaps the most recognisable commentary moment in English football history, as Martin Tyler said: "Manchester City are still alive here. Balotelli... AGUEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
"I swear you'll never see anything like this, so watch it. Drink it in."
