City manager Pep Guardiola has said he is unsure how long Sergio Aguero will be out of action.

The striker is said to have broken a rib after bing involved in a car accident in Amsterdam at around 11pm last night. He was treated in hospital in Amsterdam overnight and was due to fly back to Manchester early on Friday afternoon.

Spanish sports newspaper AS quoted Aguero telling Argentinian station Radio Metro: "The taxi driver did not see the curve and skid. And when he skidded, we hit the pole. I broke my rib, now I'm resting. It hurts me badly. I'll be discharged in a little while."

Aguero had started the season in fine form, scoring seven goals in eight appearances to help City to the top of the Premier League.

He is also on the brink of becoming the club's record goalscorer having moved within one of Eric Brook's mark of 177, which has stood since 1939.

Aguero's former club Independiente tweeted: "Force and speedy recovery @aguerosergiokun! All @Independiente is with you at this difficult time."

Aguero was in the Dutch capital to see a concert by Colombian singer/songwriter Maluma, who posted a photo of the two of them on Instagram showing the player signing one of his City shirts.

News of the accident came after it was confirmed on Thursday night that left-back Benjamin Mendy has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee.

The France international was due to undergo an operation on Friday and is facing a lengthy lay-off.

Fans have shared their reactions to the news:

The 29-year-old is currently on loan at Serie A club Torino having lost his place at City following the signing of Claudio Bravo earlier in the campaign.

Bravo's subsequent struggles - Willy Caballero has been preferred to the Chilean for seven of City's last nine games - have raised questions about the wisdom of this arrangement.

Guardiola was asked about the issue at a press conference to preview City's FA Cup quarter-final at Middlesbrough this weekend:

Guardiola says he'd relish the chance to return to Wembley. He won the Champions League there as both player and manager with Barcelona.

Pep Guardiola 'so so sad' over Ilkay Gundogan injury

Pep Guardiola says a serious injury to midfielder Ilkay Gundogan marred last night's win over Watford.

City cruised to a fairly comfortable 2-0 victory over the Hornets thanks to goals from Pablo Zabaleta and David Silva.

However German international Ilkay Gundogan suffered a serious injury and will now be ruled for what's being described as a 'very long time' by Guardiola. It's thought Gundogan might have picked up a knee ligament injury.

City are already without Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho due to suspensions.
