Sergio Aguero Has Been Diagnosed With A 'Cardiac Arrhythmia', Will Undergo Further Tests

Sergio Aguero has been diagnosed with a heart rate rhythm disorder after being admitted to hospital last night.

The Argentine striker made his first start at the Camp Nou for Barcelona against Alaves but was forced off after 40 minutes and replaced by Philippe Coutinho.


In worrying scenes, Aguero was holding his chest and appeared to be having difficulty breathing, leading to him travelling to a nearby hospital in an ambulance.

Barcelona then confirmed Aguero had a cardiac examination following the discomfort and according to journalist Veronica Brunati of SPORT, those tests uncovered a "cardiac arrhythmia".

Aguero has a heart rhythm frequency disorder - something he suffered with at the start of his career - and so he will now remain at the hospital to find out the severity of the problem through further, more detailed tests.

Aguero is believed to be as calm and content as possible but worried about what the potential outcome of these tests could be.

In the circumstances, particularly after Christian Eriksen's frightening episode at Euro 2020, it makes sense for all parties to treat the matter seriously and with complete caution.

Aguero left City after a decade of service in the summer and returned to La Liga with Barca before seeing his close friend and compatriot Lionel Messi join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.

Muscle injuries delayed his debut, which came against Valencia on October 17, and he opened his account for the Blaugrana in his first El Clasico last week.

We wish Aguero a speedy recovery and hope he is safe to return to the pitch very soon.
