Argentina’s team doctor, Dr. Donato Villani, has revealed that Sergio Aguero’s broken rib, could see him miss six weeks of action.
The Manchester City striker was involved in a car crash in Amsterdam last week, when a taxi he was travelling in hit a post after a concert.
City’s doctors diagnosed the injury as keeping Aguero out for 2-4 weeks, with talk that he could even play in their next game against Stoke.
But Villani believes it will be much longer after speaking to the player, who should have been in the squad for their 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador this week.
“Aguero is in a very bad mood because he was very eager to come and play and this incident, which had nothing to do with him, leaves him out of the two games.
“He will be off the pitch for six weeks. He can’t move in his house, or get into or out of the car,” he told Argentine TV channel TyC Sports.
