Manchester City have denied reports that striker Sergio Aguero “lost consciousness” at any points during Tuesday’s International friendly against Nigeria in Krasnodar.
A statement on the club’s website 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.”
Meanwhile, The Argentina FA said the 29-year-old had been taken to hospital to “carry out routine studies as a precaution” but that he was later discharged.
“He is already in the hotel along with the rest of the team,” they tweeted.
After the match Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli revealed that Aguero had “got dizzy and had to leave”.
