Sergio Aguero involved in minor car accident en route to training

Man City striker Sergio Aguero was unhurt after being involved in a minor car accident on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old has not required any medical treatment and the incident should not affect his availability for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Crystal Palace.

His Range Rover was though left in a sorry state with the front wheel badly damaged.


Aguero has been training at the City Football Academy as usual this week despite not playing for Argentina over the international break due to an unspecified injury.

“Sergio Aguero is not here because he’s been carrying a problem and has not been training 100 per cent with his club,” national manager Lionel Scaloni was quoted as saying at a pre-match press conference.

Aguero – who broke a rib and was sidelined for a fortnight after a car crash in Amsterdam two years ago – has begun this season in fine form. He has struck eight times in as many league appearances this term.
