After breaking a rib in a taxi crash on a day off, he was expected to stay out for several weeks, but he says he could well be available this weekend, when Manchester City host Stoke City.
I still do not know if I am going to play on Saturday. Today I trained normally, but without the group. Tomorrow I will get into the group to see how I feel, but at training it’s not the same thing as a game, I want to see if I have pain
Sergio Aguero told reporters. By the sound of it though, it looks like, worst case scenario, he’ll miss this game, but definitely be available for the next one, against Napoli, on Tuesday, a Champions League group stage game.
The Argentine was asked about the accident in Amsterdam, and if he would do something differently if he could turn back time.
When a player has a free day at Manchester City, most of the players go to London, others to Italy, some to Spain. I was lucky that I know the agent of Maluma [a Colombian singer], he invited me and I went. I had almost two days off and going to the airport was when I had that accident. Then one thinks “why did I go”, but it’s difficult to imagine that something like that could happen
Aguero said. Last, he was asked to comment on rumours that Man City could move for Lionel Messi, given that the Barcelona captain is yet to sign a new contract with the Catalan club.
The money isn’t a problem here. But I think Messi, like [Cristiano] Ronaldo, are players who are symbols of their clubs and it’s difficult for them to leave. I would love to have Leo on my team, but that seems quite complicated
the Argentina international said.
