The Barcelona team has denied that the Argentine striker should retire due to his heart abnormality via managers Rafael Yuste and Mateu Alemany, and Xavi Hernández himself at a press conference. No news is expected and the decision on its future is expected to be postponed until February.
For more than a week, the people has been saying that Sergio "el Kun" Agüero will not be able to play football again after retiring from the pitch due to a heart condition. In addition, the journalist Gerard Romero and the former partner of Argentine Samir Nasri, with whom he coincided at Manchester City between 2011 and 2017, confirmed that he was going to retire.
For a few hours, there was silence from the club, but it ended up coming out to deny this information that had come to light and that had reached a great media noise. The first to deny these words was Vice President Rafael Yuste: "Kun has three months to see how this anomaly evolves. They told us he needed three months to assess whether he could continue playing or not".
He was followed by the football director, Mateu Alemany: "There will be time to see it. At the moment, things are not clear." To finish calming the atmosphere, coach Xavi Hernández also wanted to address the issue: "I spoke with him the other day. What has come out is not true. We do not have this information, we are talking with him. We will try to evolve him and that he can continue playing soccer. He's calm, happy".
