Hats off to all their team.

Aguero then posted a photo of himself after returning to Manchester, adding: "I'm home in Manchester after an exam by club Drs". Hurts, but I'm fine, fully focused on recovery.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has suffered a broken rib in a vehicle crash in the Netherlands, dealing a major blow to the Premier League leaders' title aspirations. "I think days off are for players to be happy".

"We want to become a big club, I've been at two incredible clubs in my life, you have to overcome this situation".

"I know a player who got injured off a broken glass in the kitchen and cut his finger - he was out two months". They have to rest mentally and physically and they have to enjoy their lives.

"I don't want to know what my players do. If he decides to go there, that's ok with me". "It is okay for me".

Premier League leaders City travel to Chelsea on Saturday, sitting three points above Antonio Conte's reigning champions at the summit.

He was selected in Argentina's most recent squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador.

Guardiola said the French worldwide would have surgery on Friday and be out until April. Let us know in the comments section below! "Play right, play left, defend the long balls, set pieces, control the counter attack from (Eden) Hazard, Pedro, Willian", Guardiola joked.While Guardiola won't take a hardline stance, he admitted he is relieved the damage to Aguero wasn't even worse."I will speak to him this afternoon to ask how he is, but I know he's ok", he said.

Aguero, 29, had started the season impressively, scoring seven goals in eight appearances to move within one of equalling Eric Brook's club record 177.

"Of course it was an accident but fortunately he comes back and can recover as soon as poss".

Mendy has ruptured an anterior cruciate ligament and is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery.

The prospect of losing Mendy for the rest of the season severely weakens Guardiola's strategy, as the France worldwide was a key part of his summer squad rebuilding. "He will be out until our semi-finals of the Champions League".

And the Blues boss says there is "no way" Vincent Kompany will be fit enough to return at Chelsea on Saturday, despite the Belgian having been called up for global duty.
