Bara: Agero, in tears, ends his career (official) – football

It was (unfortunately) expected, it is now official: Sergio Agero ended his career on Wednesday due to recent heart problems … The FC Barcelona striker announced the bad news during a conference more than moving press.

A (very) moving press conference for Agero.

Sad day for football. only 33 years old, Sergio Agero officially ended his brilliant professional career on Wednesday. The FC Barcelona striker, who was diagnosed with a cardiac arrhythmia at the end of October, announced the bad news on Wednesday during a more than moving press conference.

This conference is to tell you that I decided to stop playing football, said the Argentine, in tears, from Camp Nou.

S. Agero- I did everything to have hope

It’s a very difficult time for me. I took this decision for my health. I was worried, like the medical staff, who did their best. But the best thing is to stop playing. I made this decision ten days ago, but I wanted to tell everyone that I did everything to have hope, but there really wasn’t any more., added the man who made the heyday of Manchester City for ten long and beautiful years, before joining Bara last summer as a free player.

Calf injury on arrival in Catalonia, Agero had to wait until mid-October to find his way back to the pitch. But, after four games and a goal scored during the Clasico against Real Madrid (1-2), the Kun felt a pain in his chest during his last meeting against Alavs (1-1), which forced him to give up his place before the break. Hospitalized in the crowd, he – at first – thought he could resume his career by following an adapted treatment, but the hope was short-lived.

A scoring machine

The first tests carried out in the hospital made me realize that I could perhaps continue playing, but that it would be complicated. Then we quickly understood that it would not be possible, said the Argentine during a conference which Pep Guardiola, one of his ex-City coaches, notably attended. Not to mention all his teammates, and his coach Xavi, of course.Obviously I would rather have to quit football now rather than 20 years old, added Agero. I remain proud of my career. And there is something, indeed …

Agero, who started in the country, the Independiente, before joining Atletico Madrid (2006-2011) then Manchester City (2011-2021) and finally Bara, will remain one of the most striking strikers of his generation. One of the hardest, too, and one of the most prolific, in 663 games he scored 379 goals – not to mention 118 assists – with his various clubs. He notably won the Europa League with the Colchoneros in 2010, and above all was titled in the Premier League five times with the Skyblues.

The Copa Amrica, the icing on the cake …

With, of course, this first British crown acquired in 2012 during the last day, thanks to his historic and decisive goal scored against QPR (3-2) at the end of added time. Agero is also a great story in selection,which represents the summit. 101 games for Argentina, 41 goals and 19 assists, and a Copa Amrica won last summer to finish in style, not to mention the 2008 Olympic Games, with his friend Lionel Messi. Agero, that’s it. And much more … Goodbye, legend …
