After suffering broken ribs in his recent car crash in Amsterdam, Sergio Aguero admitted the consequences could have been far worse.

The Manchester City striker was spending the day in the Dutch capital when the taxi his was travelling in crashed into a post. The initial prognosis meant he would be out of action for between two and four weeks, but the 29-year-old is aware he could have been left in far worse condition.

'When I got to the hospital I asked the doctor if I could play for City on the Saturday. He said, 'I don't believe so', Aguero told Argentina's TyC Sports. 'I took a moment to think and realised it's thanks to wearing a seat-belt that I'm able to talk about this at all'.

'I'll rejoin the group and see how I feel, whether I'm comfortable or not', said the striker on Thursday, before taking part in some light training the following day.
