Sergio Aguero was involved in a car crash in Amsterdam on Thursday night that has reportedly left the Man City striker nursing a fractured rib.

The Argentinian was in the city on his day off, attending a concert as a special guest of Colombian pop star Maluma.

Aguero’s last pre-crash social media update shows the pair posing for a photo in the back of a taxi on the way back to the airport…

@maluma . Gracias por la invitación !! 👌🏽

While initial details are a little vague, it’s being reported by Roy Nemer of Mundo Albiceleste that Aguero suffered a rib injury and will possibly be sidelined for up to two months as a result.

It would appear, at least if the photos from the scene are anything to go by, that Aguero’s taxi left the road and collided with a street light, causing the airbags to go off.

Man City released a statement on Friday morning confirming that their club doctors are now on the case, though stopped short of confirming the extent of the forward’s injuries or the potential time frame set for his convalescence:

Sergio Aguero will be assessed by club doctors today after being involved in a road accident on Thursday.

The City forward was in Holland on his day off and has sustained injuries.

He will return to Manchester this morning and his status will be checked ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash at Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola is now due to give a press conference later this morning in which a little more detail might be offered up.

We shall see, but in the meantime, here’s wishing Kun all the best.
