Manchester City’s all-time leading scorer Sergio Kun Agüero recently underwent heart surgery after complaining of chest pain during last month’s game at Alaves.
His diagnosis has not been made public, but it has been reported that he suffers from cardiac arrhythmia, which is an irregular heartbeat. Although no decisions have been made, it is reported that doctors have advised him to retire.
According to reports, Sergio Aguero’s heart condition may be severe enough to put an end to his career.
The Barcelona striker was taken off in a recent game against Alaves due to chest pains, which were followed by surgery. The club has not disclosed the nature of the problem, but it is believed that he suffers from cardiac arrhythmia, which causes an irregular heartbeat.
According to Catalunya Radio, Aguero’s condition has become so serious that doctors have advised him to consider retiring.
No decisions have been made, but it is understood that Manchester City’s all-time leading scorer will need to undergo a series of tests and monitoring before deciding whether or not to resume his career.
Barcelona has remained tight-lipped about the situation, with Sport reporting that the club will decide on his future at the end of January.
Catalunya Radio drew parallels with Barcelona footballer Caroline Graham Hansen, who recently underwent heart surgery. However, the Norwegian winger’s condition is considered to be minor, whereas Aguero’s is considered to be more serious.
After his contract at City expired, the Argentine returned to La Liga in the summer. He has only appeared in six games so far, scoring one goal.
