Barcelona: Sergio Aguero

Barcelona forward Sergio Aguero has announced his retirement from football at just 33 after suffering from a heart condition. Aguero was treated on the pitch in October against Alaves after experiencing chest pains as well as dizziness. He was rushed to hospital and after the test results were ruled out of action for three months. However, he was unable to return to the field again following the doctor’s orders and announced his retirement from football at the Nou Camp with Pep Guardiola in attendance.

“This conference is to communicate that I have decided to stop playing football.” Barcelona forward Sergio Aguero said. “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 with 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.”

“Retiring under these circumstances is difficult, but life comes first – I’ve known that from the start.” Aguero posted via Twitter.

“Everyone at Manchester City would like to take this opportunity to thank @aguerosergiokun for his incredible contribution to our success over the last decade and wish him well in his retirement,” Manchester City posted on Twitter.
