Should any blame be attached to Sergio Aguero or Manchester City after the striker was involved in a car crash in Amsterdam on Thursday? That was debated by Simon Jordan and Danny Mills on The Debate.
Aguero is likely to be out of action for around four weeks after breaking a rib in a road accident around 11pm while visiting the Dutch capital for a music concert.
City boss Pep Guardiola said he had “no problem” with Aguero being in Amsterdam on his day off, even though it was just 48 hours before a crucial Premier League clash at Chelsea.
However, former Crystal Palace owner Jordan told The Debate on Sky Sports Premier League that he thought Guardiola did not look “particularly amused” when he discussed Aguero’s accident on Friday.
“The easiest thing to avoid it would have been not to be there in the first place,” he said. “You have a big week and a big game on Saturday, so why would that be the week that you get on a jet and go somewhere else?
“What should he do? Do what everyone does, occupy your time in a manner which is productive to the profession you are in. You are in a position of privilege.
“Too often we get into the territory of how much players are paid as a reason to why they shouldn’t be able to do this and do that, but I take it another way, in that there is an element of professionalism, obligation and a great deal of responsibility with the position the players operate in. They get six weeks in the summer to do what they please.
