Barcelona and Argentina striker, Sergio Aguero has come out to announce his retirement due to a heart condition. He recently had his say via a press conference, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, it is a very heartbreaking decision to hang up his boots, but continuing to play will be a massive health risk that he just cannot take.
Aguero added that he made the decision 10 days ago after doing everything possible to have some hope of playing on.
His words, “This conference is to announce I have decided to stop playing professional football.”
“It is a very difficult moment. The decision I have taken is for my health [and relates to] the problem I had a month-and-a-half ago. I have been in good hands with the medical staff.”
“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. I always dreamed of a professional career since the first time I touched a ball at five.”
“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.”
“I will leave with my head held high. I don’t know what awaits me in the next part of my life. But I know I have people who love me. I will always remember the amazing things.”
