Manchester City have released an official statement on their website with an update on Sergio Aguero after he fainted at half-time during the Argentina vs. Nigeria friendly in Russia.
Aguero, who had scored in the first half of an eventual 4-2 loss for Argentina, had to be taken to a nearby hospital. The club have confirmed that he has been cleared to return to Manchester and will be assessed by the medical team ahead of the weekend trip to Leicester.
Contrary to reports in Argentina, the City star never lost consciousness, which is good news.
The statement reads:
Sergio Aguero has been cleared by doctors to return to Manchester as planned after suffering a dizzy spell during Argentina’s 4-2 defeat by Nigeria in Krasnodar today.
Sergio never lost consciousness, and was taken to hospital for precautionary medical checks. He will be assessed by the club’s medical team ahead of this weekend’s Premier League trip to Leicester City.
