After that alarming moment when Agüero left the field due to chest pain that looked like a bad omen similar to Eriksen’s antecedent, today it is confirmed that the Argentine striker is withdrawing from football due to a cardiac arrhythmia that makes it impossible for him to play.
The Barcelona striker had called a meeting this Wednesday where he would announce his future during a press conference and, as expected, Agüero announced that his career as a footballer had ended.
A career with a trajectory of 18 years where he shone in great clubs in Europe such as Atlético de Madrid and Manchester City, and where he obtained all kinds of titles. However, Agüero retires with an outstanding debt that seems impossible to pay off.
Despite having achieved Europa League and the Super Cup with Atlético and having won everything on a local level with Manchester City, a team where he was also established as the top scorer in history, there was a long-awaited trophy that he could not get at the club level.
It is about nothing more and nothing less, than the UEFA Champions League, the title that every footballer who plays in the elite dreams of, and although Kun was close to achieving it, in 2016 City lost in the semifinal against Real Madrid, and in the 2020-2021 edition they lost in the final against Chelsea, will leave that big account pending.
Despite not having won the Champions League, Kun retires from football with an enviable career in which he won a Europa League and European Super Cup title with Atlético de Madrid; 5 Premier Leagues, 1 FA Cup, 3 Community Shield and 6 League Cups at Manchester City; 2 U-20 World Cups, a gold medal at the 2008 Olympic Games and the most recent Copa América title with the Argentina team.
