Removed from the field since the end of October due to cardiovascular problems, Sergio Agüero is fully supported by FC Barcelona while rumors of a retirement fuse in the press.

On October 30, Sergio Agüero collapsed on the Camp Nou lawn after only 40 minutes of play when receiving < strong> Alaves (1-1). And it had nothing to do with fatigue, but heart failure. Indeed, a few weeks after this unfortunate episode, the final diagnosis fell and Sergio Agüero suffers from a cardiac arrhythmia which would prevent him from playing high-level football. Enough to encourage the summer recruit of FC Barcelona arriving from Manchester City to retire prematurely? At least this is the information that has been circulating in Spain in recent days with an official announcement due to be made this week. On the set of Match of ze day, Samir Nasri, his former teammate in City , sent the following message on Saturday afternoon. “He just sent me a message, unfortunately it's confirmed. So I have a lot of trouble. Besides having been the player that everyone knows, who was a phenomenon, he's a very good guy, a very good person. I have a lot of trouble because it is not a choice, it is an unfortunately forced stop ”.

After Xavi and Alemany, Alba is also stepping up to the plate for Agüero!

However, on the side of FC Barcelona , we are not so categorical. In the wake of Barça's victory against Espanyol Barcelona on Saturday (1-0), on the occasion of the premiere of Xavi Hernandez on the bench at the club, the Spanish coach was keen to calm rumors of the retirement of Sergio Agüero by denying the speculations circulating in the press. “What came out on Kun is not true. I hope he can continue to play football. We have spoken to him these days and our information is not this. “. Same story for the executive director Mateu Alemany who for his part asked everyone for time for this delicate situation. “We have to respect him a lot and give Kun and the doctors time. To rush seems reckless to me. For now, things are not clear, we will see if the situation improves. Let's wait and see. “

A few hours have passed and the announcement of a retirement for Sergio Agüero has still not taken place. This Monday, Jordi Alba was at a press conference as part of the reception of Benfica Lisbon this Tuesday evening on behalf of the fifth day of the group stage of the Champions League. And the FC Barcelona defender gave his unconditional support to his Blaugrana teammate. “It doesn't have to be pleasant or easy. He is in a good mood, he is very positive. He encourages us more. It's something that belongs to him and he will have to say how his situation is ”. It remains to be seen what will be the outcome of this sad soap opera.
