Sergio Kum Aguero, the Argentine talisman, has bowed out of professional football.
In a press briefing at the Camp Nou to announce his retirement, the morose looking Aguero could not hide his disappointment for abruptly retiring from football.
‘‘I have decided to stop playing professional football. These are difficult moments. The Medical staff have done their best but they tell me the best thing is to stop playing. Ten days ago, I made that decision. I did what was possible but to no avail,’’ he stated.
Following a cardiac test, Aguero was ruled out for three months but even before he could return to the pitch, he announced his announcement, a decision he attributes to the advice of his medical team.
He however thanked all those who have supported him in his illustrious football career.
A premier league legend, Aguero will be remembered for his instrumental place of pride at the Etihad Stadium, where he broke so many records.
