Argentine and Barcelona forward, Sergio Aguero has announced early retirement from professional football at the age of 33. Aguero who joined Barcelona on a free transfer in the summer transfers was substituted after he showed signs of difficult breathing, chest pains and dizziness.
It was later announced that the Argentine international will be out for 3 months. But his health condition took an unpromising turn that he had to start making plans for an early retirement. In his emotional retirement speech today, Aguero said;
“This conference is to communicate that I have decided to stop playing football. “It is a very difficult moment. The decision I have made I have taken for my health, that is the main reason, because of the problem that I had a month-and-a-half ago.
“I was in good hands of the medical staff who have done their best and have told me the best thing would be to stop playing. “So I made that decision about a week ago and I want to tell everyone I did everything possible to have hope, but there wasn’t very much.”
Aguero before he moved to Barcelona, he spent 10 EPL seasons at Manchester City, he scored 260 goals for the club in 390 appearances and lifted the English Premier League cup with City for 5 times.
He also broke Eric Brook’s record to become the club’s all-time top goal scorer in 2017, won six League Cup trophies, and 1 FA Cup, with Manchester City.
