Victim of a heart attack in the middle of a match, Sergio Agüero will miss three months of competition with FC Barcelona. And he could even be forced to retire from sports after his convalescence.
During Barça-Alavés this Saturday, Sergio Agüero suffered a heart attack while in the field. But as he said on social networks on Monday, El Kun is already feeling a lot better. “I am in good health and in a good mood to begin the recovery process. I want to thank you all for all the messages of support and affection that make my heart stronger today, ”posted the Barça striker on his Twitter account. Despite everything, Sergio Agüero will not be back on the pitch anytime soon, since he will be absent for a minimum of three months. And he might never even play again.
“It is obvious that a sports retirement is a possibility for Agüero”
In an interview with RAC 1, Dr Ramon Brugada announced that Sergio Agüero could end his career. “If you have had an atrial therapy process, it is generally progressing very well and is 80% cured. On the other hand, if it is a ventricular process, it will be necessary to see how it evolves. It is obvious that a sports retreat is a possibility for Agüero. We are talking about a heart which has undergone an intense effort for many years and which must have developed an atrial arrhythmia, which can be treated well, or ventricular, which would already be more worrying. A heart like Agüero's must have been put to almost 250 [beats per minute] to feel bad, ”said the head of the cardiology department and director of the hospital's family heart disease unit Josep Trueta from Girona. Dr Ramon Brugada is also the brother of Josep Brugada, the author of the treatment of < strong> Sergio Agüero.
