Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero had a lucky escape after being involved in a car crash, according to reports online.

The Argentina star was in a taxi in Amsterdam on a night out when it crashed, and Aguero will be out for two months with a broken rib – but it could have been worse had he not been wearing his seat belt, ESPN South America said.

Aguero had reportedly been at a concert by Colombian singer Maluma and on his way back to the airport when the driver lost control.

Pictures on social media showed a car smashed head-on into a light pole.

Que viva el fútbol y la amistad, gracias por el detalle @10aguerosergiokun
