Sergio Aguero escaped injury after being involved in a car crash this morning.
The Manchester City striker needed no medical attention, and his Range Rover suffered only minor damage.
The prang is not expected to affect Aguero ’s availability for Sunday’s game at Crystal Palace, although he did miss Argentina’s two games during the international break because of an ongoing niggle.
Reports suggested Aguero was on his way to the City Football Academy, but he was not due in training – the first team squad had the day off after being signed off international duty yesterday.
He later posted a picture of the damage on his Instagram account with the message “What a great morning”.
It is the second time Aguero has been involved in a car accident since signing for the Blues in 2011.
In September 2017, he suffered a fractured rib after the taxi in which he was travelling crashed into a lamp-post in Amsterdam.
That injury kept him out for a fortnight, which meant he missed two games.
This week Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni said that Aguero had not been in the national squad due to an ongoing issue which has prevented him from training full-time with City.
But Scaloni added that the 31-year-old is expected to play in next month’s international break.
