Premier League outfit Manchester City have today been handed a massive boost, as striker Sergio Aguero has returned to training.
Argentinian hitman Aguero was involved in a car crash in Amsterdam on the 29th of September, leaving him with a fractured rib.
A return date was not originally set for the South American star, but a worrying update came courtesy of Argentinian team doctor Donato Villani last week, when he claimed that Aguero was struggling to move and would likely be sidelined for for 6 weeks.
‘He can’t move in his house, nor get in and out of the car. He seemed very down to me because we wanted to be here (with Argentina),’ Villani explained.
Crucially, this would have ruled the former Atletico Madrid man out of City’s crunch double-header with Napoli in the Champions League, as well as a Premier League matchup with Arsenal on the 5th of November.
However, as per a further update coming from Manchester City’s official website this afternoon, Aguero has incredibly already returned to light training with a physio from the club.

Though it was stressed that the session was only a ‘light’ one, early reports suggest that the 29-year-old could return to first-team training with the rest of his teammates over the coming days.
No date has yet been set for his return, but the simple fact that he is even back out on the training ground would seem to suggest that Aguero is well ahead of schedule in his recovery.
Aguero has made a typically scintillating start to the season, having racked up 6 goals and 3 assists in 6 Premier League outings to this point.
Manchester City will make their return to action following the international break with a league clash versus Stoke City at the Etihad this Saturday, at 3pm.
