Football world reacts to Sergio Aguero’s early retirement

The world of football has reacted as Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero announced his retirement from football on Wednesday

Sergio ‘Kun’ Agüero was forced to hang his boots on Wednesday, prematurely retiring due to a heart condition discovered following what wound up being his final appearance as a player, on October 30th for Barcelona, in a match against Alavés.

The 33-year-old striker held a tearful press conference in Catalunya to communicate his decision.

“This conference is to communicate that I have decided to stop playing football.

“It is a very difficult moment. The decision I have made I have taken for my health, that is the main reason, because of the problem that I had a month-and-a-half ago.

I was in good hands of the medical staff who have done their best and have told me the best thing would be to stop playing,” he added.

It brings an end to a storied career for a player who is seemingly universally beloved.

He was responsible for the greatest finish to a Premier League season ever with his dramatic title-winning late goal for ManCity in 2012.

That moment was part of his record-setting run at City, where he became the club’s all-time leading goalscorer and one of the top forwards in the history of the English top flight.

Aguero has found back of the net 427 goals in 786 games across spells at Independiente, Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, and Barca, winning five Premier League titles, two FA Cups, six League Cups and a Copa America.

By all this, the world of football didn’t want to forget of him in a so signalled day for the Kun.
