Aguero says ready for Man City return

Sergio Aguero has declared himself ready to return for Manchester City, just two weeks after suffering broken ribs in a car crash.

The Argentina international suffered the injury during an off-day in Amsterdam towards the end of September and was initially ruled out for up to a month.

However, the 29-year-old returned to training this week and insists he is ready to play, although he is unsure whether City boss Pep Guardiola will consider him for action against Stoke City on Saturday.

“I still do not know if I am going to play on Saturday,” Aguero told TyC Sports. “I trained normally, but without the group.”

When looking back on the day of his accident, Aguero said: “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.”
