Aguero debunks retirement rumours as Barcelona striker sent support amid heart problems


After being sidelined at Camp Nou due to a health concern, there has been talk that the seasoned frontman may have to put up his boots.

Despite rumours that his heart ailment might cause him to retire, Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero says he is “always positive,” with Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni still expecting to see the star return to competitive action.
According to Catalunya Radio, the 33-year-old striker, who only arrived to Camp Nou from Manchester City during the summer, may have to retire due to a significant health concern.

Aguero has been sidelined by an ailment that will keep him out for at least three months, but the forward has taken to social media to express his displeasure.

Reacting to the retirement talk via Twitter, Aguero wrote: “Given the rumors, I can say that I am following the instructions of the club’s doctors, doing tests and treatment and checking my progress within 90 days. Always positive.”

Ante los rumores les cuento que estoy siguiendo las indicaciones de los médicos del club, haciendo pruebas y tratamiento y ver mi evolución en el plazo de los 90 días. Siempre en positivo 🤟🏽

According to Goal, Scaloni describes the situation as “something no one deserves”. Argentina’s manager believes that a player who is going through a difficult moment of such may make a full recovery, with good wishes from South America being given to the Barcelona striker after reports of his retirement surfaced.

When asked if he had spoken to a player with 101 caps and 41 goals for Argentina, Scaloni informed reporters:

“Regarding Kun, yes, we’ve talked and we’ve sent each other messages.

“Besides him being a player, he is a boy we appreciate a lot.

“We are sad because he is going through something no one deserves.

“We hope he recovers and could be playing as soon as possible. We send him all our support.”
