English Premier League (EPL) giants Manchester City have denied widespread rumours which stated that star striker Sergio Aguero collapsed during the halftime interval of the game between his Argentina team and Nigeria.
The club dispelled those rumours via a statement from the club on Tuesday night. The statement said: “Sergio Aguero has been cleared by doctors to return to Manchester as planned after suffering a dizzy spell during Argentina’s 4-2 defeat by Nigeria in Krasnodar today. Sergio never lost consciousness, and was taken to hospital for precautionary medical checks. He will be assessed by the club’s medical team ahead of this weekend’s Premier League trip to Leicester City.”
