Despite concerns that his heart ailment may cause him to retire from sports, Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero has claimed that he is “always positive.”
After suffering a cardiac arrhythmia during Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Alaves on October 30, reports surfaced today that Aguero may retire from football.
“In reaction to the rumours [on Friday], I can tell you that I am following the advice of the club’s doctors, carrying out tests and treatment and to see how I evolve within 90 days,” Aguero stated in a tweet via his Twitter profile. Always keep a good attitude.”
Barcelona is yet to make a remark on the situation and is now silent.
After completing cardiological testing earlier this month, Aguero will be out for at least the next three months.
In the summer, the Argentine international moved to Barcelona on a free transfer from Manchester City.
During Barcelona’s LaLiga match against Alaves, Aguero began to have chest issues in only his sixth appearance for the Catalan club.
The 33-year-old was brought to the hospital and put through a battery of cardiological testing to figure out what was wrong.
Barcelona subsequently issued an official statement confirming that Aguero will be unavailable for at least three months while undergoing more treatment.
