Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been involved in a car crash in the Netherlands, according to reports in Argentina.
The unverified claims say the 29-year-old fractured a rib after the taxi in which he was travelling in Amsterdam hit a lamp post.
Dutch police have told Sky Sports News that two people were injured and taken to hospital, but would not confirm their names.
Aguero had earlier posted a picture of himself with Colombian singer Maluma on his Instagram account. He was understood to have been attending Maluma’s concert before the accident happened.
The City star’s former club, Independiente, tweeted a photo of Aguero with the words: ‘Strength and prompt recovery. Everyone @ Independiente is with you in this difficult moment.’
Tim Vickery, a renowned English football journalist based in South America, told Sky Sports News on Friday morning that news of Aguero’s accident was making headlines back in Argentina.
Vickery said the accident happened as Aguero was making his way back to the airport, to catch a flight to Manchester.
The press in Argentina have already published photos of the taxi, following the accident, with news outlets in the South American country estimating that Aguero will be sidelined ‘for at least three months’.
