Barcelona: Aguero: I had strange symptoms, I felt quite short of breath in training, until one day…

Sergio Aguero revealed that he was experiencing unusual symptoms in the lead-up to the heart arrhythmia that he suffered earlier this season.

The 33-year-old was playing for Barcelona at the time but was forced to retire in football in December due to his heart condition, and he spoke about the situation on the Spanish TV show ‘El Hormiguero’.

“I started to feel bad in pre-season, with strange symptoms, but I thought that it was because of the training sessions, the heat,” Aguero said.

“Then I got injured and I was out for a month, but I still felt uncomfortable.

“I then started to train with the team and in the training sessions I felt quite short of breath, until one day I told the doctor that I was feeling bad, and then I started feeling quite dizzy and the arrhythmia started.

“The doctor did a check on me and everything was fine, but the following week it happened to me in the stadium [against Alaves in October].”

Aguero spoke about how much he struggled to get the referee’s attention to stop the match against Alaves.

“I started to feel bad and I wanted to shout at the referee to stop the game, but I couldn’t get the words out,” he explained.

“Then I started to feel dizzy, so I grabbed a defender’s hand and asked him to stop the game.

“I then felt very dizzy and the arrhythmia started.

“When it stopped, they took me to the hospital and kept me there for three days.”

Aguero then revealed that he was told by a doctor of the enormous risk of playing again.

“The doctor told me that I could play, but that it could happen again and it could be worse,” he noted.

“And after thinking about it a lot, I said: ‘That’s it, I’m 33 years old, I have a son and my life in front of me.’”

Barcelona regret

He went on to talk about his regret at being unable to do more at Barcelona.

“The only thing that I was unable to do was play for Barcelona and I wanted to give everything for the club, which was in a bad situation,” Aguero stated.

“That was what I had left to do, but I ended my career [by] scoring my last goal against Real Madrid.”
