Sergio Aguero will announce his retirement from football through a press conference this Wednesday in Spain. The Argentine player suffered an arrhythmia during the La Liga match against Alaves and had to be assisted. Unfortunately, he will not be able to continue playing soccer and will have to stay away from the fields so as not to take risks with his life.
Sergio Aguero says goodbye. He had already told the Argentine media that we were going to miss him when he was gone and that is how it will be. One of the most representative players in Argentina leaves the activity and who knew how to be champion, idol and leader in England. He has probably been one of the best Argentine forwards of all time and, after Lionel Messi, his great friend, the best Argentine player of the 21st century.
In a short time, he knew how to win the number 10 on his back and forged his name based on goals, assists, dribbles and courage. In 2005 he was the U-20 world champion with Lionel Messi, with whom he formed a great friendship that lasted throughout the years in the Senior National Team. He will always be remembered for scoring an incredible goal in the 4-0 win against Racing: in the Avellaneda Classic, Agüero took the ball in the middle of the court, left Vitali on the road, ran into the area and destroyed poor Crosa’s hip. The goalkeeper could not do anything and Kun remained in the history of Independiente. Soon Atlético de Madrid appeared to put the necessary money -20 million euros- and achieve two milestones: the most expensive pass in the history of Argentine football and Atlético up to that moment. Independiente used the money to build a new stadium that today is called Estadio Libertadores de América Ricardo Bochini.
In the Spanish team he made his way through goals. He was the team’s soccer leader and made great pairs with Diego Forlán and Maxi Rodríguez. At just 19 years old, he became the most important player on the team. He scored goals against Barcelona, Real Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla and Villarreal. The team qualified for the Champions League for the first time in 10 years. In between, he was once again the youth world champion, but this time he was the star: scorer and golden ball of the tournament. His team was another Atlético that Diego Simeone had not yet reached. Sergio Aguero led the team – two assists in the final – to conquer the Europa League in his last season with the club.
In 2011, Manchester City bought it for 35 million euros and once again set purchase and sale records for each club. He made his Citizens debut on August 15 against Swansea, scoring two goals and assisting David Silva. The rest was history: mythical 94th minute goal against QPR to give City a title since 1968, 5 Premier League, 1 F.A. Cup, 6 League Cup and 3 Community Shield. The icing on the cake could have been last season’s Champions League, but it couldn’t. He will go down in history for being the top scorer with the Manchester City jersey. The top foreign scorer. For being the top winner with the club he will raise the statue of him at the entrance to the Etihad Stadium. For being the player who gave him a title after so many years and in the best possible way. The cry of ‘Agüerooooooooooooooo’ will remain in history.
