SERGIO AGUERO has been given the green light to fly back to England after fainting during a game last night.
The Manchester City star is believed to have collapsed during the half-time break of Argentina’s 4-2 friendly defeat to Nigeria in Russia.All seemed to be fine in the first-half as goals from Aguero and Ever Banega put Argentina clear of their opponents.But the striker fainted during the break and was sent to hospital as a precaution.
The Argentine FA confirmed: “He fainted and was therefore transferred to carry out routine checks just as a precaution.”Argentina went on to lose the match 4-2, but there is good news for their key attacker.
Aguero has been given a thumbs-up by medical authorities in Russia, and will now be able to fly back home to Manchester.
But whether Aguero will be able to face Leicester this weekend remains to be seen, with City sure to do their own check-ups before making a decision.
Possible reason that Aguero fainted due to a drop in his blood pressure. Aguero is believed to have encountered similar problems when he was a teenager, and the event comes just six weeks after he broke his ribs during a car crash in Amsterdam.
