Argentine international and Barcelona FC forward, Sergio Aguero has reportedly been diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia following his on-field episode during Barcelona’s match against Alaves on Saturday evening.
The former Manchester City forward has suffered a string of muscle injuries since moving to Barca, and these have prevented him from building any sort of momentum with his new club thus far.
Aguero made his very first start for Barcelona at the Nou Camp against Alaves on Saturday night following the departure of Ronald Koeman.
However, the now fully-fit Aguero’s woes deepened against Alaves on Saturday evening after he was withdrawn from the pitch with apparent difficulties with his breathing.
Sergio Aguero was substituted in some distress as Barcelona faced Alaves and this caused more concern to fans after it was learnt that he left the pitch with breathing problems. Aguero was subsequently taken to hospital, where according to Spanish outlet EL PAIS he was diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia, an underlying heart condition which had previously gone unnoticed.
The report by EL PAIS notes that Aguero’s disorder may not pose any threat to the player itself, but could perhaps be an indicator that he is suffering from further problems with his heart. Further tests will reveal all.
There is currently no real insight provided as to how this could affect Aguero’s career going forward. The situation will be unearthing distressing Christian Eriksen memories from that frightening Euro 2020 fixture.
