Barcelona star Sergio Aguero was taken to hospital for a cardiac exam after suffering chest pain and dizziness during Barcelona's 1-1 draw with Alaves last month. "I was told he was feeling a bit dizzy. I have just learned that he was taken to hospital and I can't say much more until I know,"
Barcelona's caretaker coach Sergi Barjuan said after the match.
Aguero played for Manchester City for 10 years before making a switch to Barcelona this past summer. After the scary situation, Manchester City wished a speedy recovery to Aguero. "Everyone at Manchester City wishes you a speedy recovery," it read.
"We're with you." A month later, Aguero could reportedly retire from football after the scary situation.
Pep Guardiola himself wished Aguero a speedy rocovery
"We wish him well from all the people here at Manchester City, we wish him a safe recovery," Manchester City coach Guardiola told a press conference while addressing Aguero's hospital admission.
"The time doesn’t matter. Health and life are much more important than anything else. “We wish him as speedy and safe recovery as possible and he comes back, if possible, to play again, otherwise to enjoy his life and what he has done, and to be careful and be safe for the rest of his life”.
"I would love, I said many times, when I finish here, the pleasure to lead a team at a World Cup," Guardiola explained in his press conference. "But it is not easy to find it. There are only a few positions.
"I would like it but if it doesn't happen I will train clubs, so it will not be a problem." Aguero and Guardiola won many titles together and Guardiola said he would never consider coaching other club than Manchester City.
"In England, being here I think always I will be Man City and if I have to come back it would be at Man City, if they want me," Guardiola said. "I would not train another club in England apart from this club."
Meanwhile, Aguero's current team Barcelona beat Villareal 3-1 on Saturday. Villareal thought the refs missed out on a clear penalty and they were furious after the match. "We're the only team who haven't been given a penalty, and Barcelona haven't been given against," Pau Torres said after the match.
"They were given everything, it was impossible. To check an offside we were waiting for 10 minutes, to check a penalty it would have been two."
