Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has said that he is fit for Saturday’s Premier League match at Leicester City, after fainting while playing for Argentina against Nigeria on Tuesday in Russia.
The 29-year-old was taken to hospital at half-time during Argentina’s 4-2 friendly defeat by Super Eagles. Aguero was discharged after “precautionary medical checks”.
“I’m set to go for Saturday’s match,” Aguero tweeted yesterday on the social media. “The tests they run on me turn out well”.
City said Aguero was cleared by doctors to return to Manchester as planned after “suffering a dizzy spell” during the match in Krasnodar. They said he “never lost consciousness”.
Aguero recently returned to action after suffering a rib injury when a taxi he was travelling in crashed into a lamp post in Amsterdam in September.
City is eight points clear of Manchester United at the top of the EPL table.
