Man City's Aguero injured in crash


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insisted he isn't concerned by his players' off-field activities just hours after Sergio Aguero was involved in a vehicle crash in the Netherlands.

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

In addition, AFP cites Amsterdam police spokesperson saying that "a taxi-cab hit a lamp-post".

The 29-year-old will arrive back in Manchester on Friday afternoon after being discharged from hospital, but has missed City's final training session ahead of Saturday's game against Chelsea.

Aguero was going to the Amsterdam airport after attending a concert. "Why should he apologise to me? No".

"No [he does not need to]". He is travelling there to make a meeting with the Belgium doctor but he is coming back.

"I think days off are to be happy", Guardiola told reporters. "They are fathers, they have a full responsibility on their shoulders - on and off the pitch". I have a private life, a family, there are rules and ways to live between each other and that's all.

"Thank you with all my heart for the supportive messages, they really do help me in recovering", Aguero wrote on his Twitter account yesterday after returning to the UK.

"I want my players to have fun". Some of them can be upset, some not. Some of them can be upset, some not, but at the end it's fortunate the injury is not bad.

"Sergio is mature enough to know exactly what he has to do". Describing what happened, Aguero tweeted: 'The taxi I was riding made a wrong turn and crashed against a pole. "They work amazingly", he said.

The global break follows City's match against Chelsea.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss is keen to see how his revamped squad respond and will not allow Aguero's absence to serve as an excuse.

"I don't want to know what my players do". The big clubs do it - they overcome the hard situations. City legend Sergio Agüero, will likely be replaced by playmaker Bernardo Silva, if manager Guardiola opts for numerical superiority in midfield. At Spurs you couldn't go out after a Wednesday. It's just as important to avoid too many players with inflated ownership as it is to find diamonds in the rough, and ss such, this week, we will look at a player from each position who is owned in over 10% of leagues... but probably shouldn't be.
