Sergio Aguero has returned to training with Manchester City less than a fortnight after breaking his rib in a car accident.

The 29-year-old was travelling home from a concert in a taxi in Amsterdam when the vehicle crashed, forcing him to miss his side's 1-0 win at Chelsea the following weekend.

Aguero was expected to be unavailable to Pep Guardiola for up to four weeks with the rib injury and he was not called up for Argentina's crucial World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Ecuador.

However, Aguero, who is one goal shy of levelling Eric Brook's long-standing record of 177 goals for City, made a surprise return to light training yesterday and is now building up his fitness in the hope of making a quick return to first-team action.
