The COVID World post date: November 12th, 2021
BARCELONA – Football star Sergio Aguero has been advised by doctors to quit football due to his heart problems according to a shock report in Spain. Manchester City’s all-time leading scorer required medical attention shortly before half-time while playing for new club Barcelona against Alaves last month. The 33-year-old was taken to hospital for heart tests where he was diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia – an irregular heartbeat. Catalunya Ràdio’s ‘El Matí’ now claims that doctors are suggesting that he should retire.
The latest report states that ‘the medical resonances and stress tests that Aguero has undergone in recent days are detailing that the heart problem is more serious than initially thought at first. It could suggest that his health might be ‘incompatible’ with pro football ‘at a level required by Barcelona’.
No decisions have been made yet, but it is understood that Aguero will need a number of tests and monitoring to determine whether he can resume his career.
Aguero is open in his support of the COVID-19 vaccine. Six weeks before his heart problems started, the football star went online to promote the vaccine to 12-year-olds:
Argentine and @FCBarcelona_cat striker, @aguerosergiokun, is calling on all people aged 12 and over to get vaccinated!
Remember, vaccinating ourselves allows the virus to not spread as easily.
FC Barcelona suffered another scare last week when it was revealed Caroline Graham Hansen, who plays for the club’s women’s team, would also need to undergo a cardiac exam.
No official comment has been made regarding Aguero’s condition from the club.
