Aguero thankful car crash wasn’t more serious

Man City striker Sergio Aguero has admitted he could have suffered far worse than a broken rib in his recent car crash.

The Manchester City striker was injured while spending a day off in Amsterdam a fortnight ago when a taxi in which he was travelling in crashed into a post. The 29-year-old’s injuries were expected to keep him out of action for two to four weeks but the accident could have left him in a much worse condition.

“When I got to the hospital I asked the doctor if I could play for City on the Saturday. He said, ‘I don’t believe so’,” Aguero told Argentina’s TyC Sports. “I took a moment to think and realised it’s thanks to wearing a seat-belt that I’m able to talk about this at all.”
