Sergio Aguero’s father, Leonel del Castillo, has revealed that his son could have suffered a much worse fate had he not put his seatbelt on seconds before the taxi in which he was travelling crashed into a lamp post.
Kun’s dad is quoted in several newspapers, including the Mirror and Daily Star, as saying, “The taxi was driving very fast, Kun (Aguero) asked him to slow down, put on his seat belt and crashed instantly.
“He was lucky. They put him on painkillers, he was released and taken to Manchester.”
Luckily, Aguero made that very important decision and the news out of the club this evening is that he could even be back for the first game after the international break, when Manchester City face Stoke City.
Aguero has been in red hot form this season, bagging 7 goals in 8 games, and is just one goal shy of Eric Brook’s record as Manchester City’s all-time top scorer. His penalty miss against Shakhtar Donetsk during the week prevented him from going level, but it is only a matter of time before he not only equals Brook’s long-standing record, but breaks it.
