Barcelona: Spanish club Barcelona’s Argentine striker Sergio Aguero is retiring due to heart problems. This was reported by the Spanish media. Aguero will make the announcement at a press conference next week, according to Spanish media reports.
Famous journalist Fabricio Romano also tweeted about it.
The player was admitted to hospital last month with chest pain during a lazy match in La Liga. Earlier, it was reported that the player was about to leave the field due to further heart problems.
Aguero, who suffered from chest pains and shortness of breath shortly before the end of the first half, was told by the Barcelona bench to withdraw. After this, the player lay on the field with his hand on his chest. Soon after, Barസa’s medical team went to the ground and examined the Argentine. The player, who brought a stretcher but refused to lie down on it and walk out of the stadium, walked slowly out with the medical team.
Following this, Barcelona stated in a statement that the player would not be able to play for three months.
Subsequent detailed examination revealed that the star’s heart problems were more serious than expected, the report said.
Aguero, who joined Barcelona from Manchester City this season, has played just five games for the club so far. The player spent just 165 minutes on the field. His first match was against Valencia on 17 October in a Barcelona jersey.
