FC Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero has announced his retirement with effect after advice from medical staff.

Aguero last played in October against Alaves. Against Alves, he was forced off the field because he was having chest pains and difficulty breathing.

Initially, the medical staff only suggested that he rest for three months. But afterwards, it was found out that Aguero was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. 

Comments from Sergio Aguero in his conference :

“This conference is to announce I have decided to stop playing professional football. It is a very difficult moment. The decision is taken for my health; the problem I had a month and a half ago “said Aguero.

“I made the decision 10 days ago after doing everything possible to have some hope of playing on. I am very proud of my career and I want to thank Atletico Madrid who took a chance on me when I was 18 and Manchester City, everyone knows how I feel about City and how well they treated me there.

Let’s take a look at Sergio Aguero and his various achievements

Aguero ended his career with Barcelona but he will forever be associated with Manchester City for his iconic goal. The Argentinian has had goals galore at both Manchester City and Atletico Madrid as well.

At Manchester City, Kun’s “93:20” goal is the club’s best moment. Perhaps it is also regarded as the best moment in PL history. Ever since Kun won the PL title for Manchester City, he has shone for them every season. 

Sergio is the top-scoring overseas player in the PL with 181 goals. Overall he is 4th on the list behind Rooney, Cole and Shearer. He has also scored the most PL hat-tricks (12) beating Alan Shearer’s record of 11 hat-tricks.

Kun is Manchester City’s top goalscorer as well. He is the Premier League’s most lethal goal scorer as well in terms of goals scored per minute.

Sergio Aguero did not become famous only with Manchester City, he has left his mark in La Liga as well. He first appeared for Atletico Madrid only when he was 18 years old. From 2006 to 2010, Kun scored 75 goals for them and won the Europa League and UEFA Super Cup.
