Sergio Aguero Has Four Job Offers On The Table After Announcing Retirement Due To Heart Problems

Sergio Aguero reportedly has four job offers on the table after announcing his retirement from football on Wednesday.

The Argentine striker held an emotional press conference where he revealed that he had to end his career prematurely on doctor's advice due to heart problems.

"My health comes first, " Aguero said as he wept on stage.

"Medical staff have told me it’s best to stop playing and so I’m now leaving Barcelona and retiring from professional football."

In what proved to be his final game as a footballer, Aguero was substituted against Alaves last month after experiencing chest pains and breathing difficulties.

He was optimistic of carrying on playing but will now have to embark on a new chapter in his life.

According to Argentine outlet Ole, Manchester City are ready to bring him back to the club in a global ambassadorial role.

The club have already confirmed the five-time Premier League winner will have a special statue erected outside the Etihad Stadium alongside fellow legends Vincent Kompany and David Silva.

The 33-year-old is City's record goalscorer with 260 goals in 390 appearances, and memorably scored the dramatic goal that secured the club's first league title for 44 years in 2012.

MARCA say Aguero will be offered an opportunity to remain with the Argentina national team as part of Lionel Scaloni's coaching team, or a role within La Albiceleste's youth sides.

As he comes to terms with the fact that he has kicked his last ball, Aguero will now spend time with his family - while he also recently set up an eSports team.

However, he could well follow many former players in becoming a TV pundit.

At Barca, Aguero scored once in five appearances. He will be paid the remainder of his salary for this season but has agreed to forego the final year of his £100,000-a-week contract.
