Manchester City star Sergio Aguero was involved in a minor car crash as he made his way to training on Wednesday morning.
The Argentine was travelling to Etihad Campus facility centre when his £150,000 LUMMA CLR SV Range Rover Sport was involved in an accident.
The 31-year-old fortunately walked away from the crash unscathed as images showed serious damage to the car’s front right wheel.
Sky Sports said: ‘We understand he is unhurt after being involved in a small car collision, we’ve been told that he’s had a bump this morning.
“It’s been described as a minor plan, but has reported to the CFA – City Football Academy
Aguero was not called up by his country during the international break as he struggled with a calf injury.
Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni said: ‘Sergio Aguero is not here because he’s been carrying a problem and has not been training 100 per cent with his club. Surely both will be here next month.’
Wednesday’s incident comes two years after Aguero was involved in another crash in Amsterdam, which saw him suffer broken ribs.
The Argentine was a passenger that time as he rode in a taxi before it collided with a pole.
While initial reports suggested that he’d miss up to six weeks out, Aguero returned to action two weeks later before going on to score his 177th goal for City in a 3–0 win over Burnley, equalling the club’s record goalscorer Eric Brook at the time.
The Argentine would become the club’s top goalscorer shortly thereafter.
Aguero is expected to be available for selection when City travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace on Saturday.
