Sergio Aguero to make emotional comeback for one game after retiring due to heart issues

Sergio Aguero to make emotional comeback for one game after retiring due to heart issues

Sergio Aguero is set make a return to the pitch after retiring due to heart problems in 2021.

Sergio Aguero is set to make an emotional return to the pitch at the end of this month after being forced to retire in 2021.

On the advice of doctors, Aguero had to hang up his boots sooner than he would have liked due to heart problems.

In October 2021, the Argentine was substituted for Barcelona against Alaves having experienced chest pains and breathing difficulties.

It was just his first start for the Blaugrana at the Nou Camp but it ended after 41 minutes when he fell to the turf after winning a header.

Aguero retired a month later in a teary press conference and has had to adapt to a life without football.

However, he did train with the Argentina national team during the World Cup and was very much part of their celebrations after they went all the way in Qatar.

And it's now been announced that the Manchester CIty legend will be back doing what he loves the most. Aguero has been announced as a guest player for the 2023 Noche Amarilla, a yearly friendly fixture played by Ecuador outfit Barcelona S.C.

The game takes place on 28 January and Aguero, now 34, has been given the green light to play.

“I look forward to Noche Amarilla, to have fun and have a good time with the fans of Barcelona S.C," Aguero said.

"I’ve had check-ups from the cardiologist, I am very well and I have already started training, so I will be able to play in the Noche Amarilla. I hope to have fun and feel the pitch again.

"I went out to eat in Qatar and was watching Ecuador’s first match in the World Cup. Some fans of Barcelona S.C. recognised me and asked me to come to Noche Amarilla.”

Icons like Ronaldinho, Diego Forlan, Kaka, Alessandro Del Piero, Andrea Pirlo and Carlos Tevez have all played in the traditional fixture.

Although he was not able to play in the World Cup, Aguero was made to feel part of Argentina's triumph and got his hands on the trophy.

However, because of his health situation, best friend Lionel Messi told him to stop drinking during the wild scenes.

“I drank a lot but I didn’t eat," Aguero said as per TyC Sports.

"We were world champions. If something were to happen to me, let it be there.

“Leo [Messi] got angry and told me ‘stop’. How [do I] stop? We are world champions, so happy.”
