According to sources in Spain, Barcelona forward Sergio Aguero will have to undergo a comprehensive cardiac check after being diagnosed with arrhythmia.
After jumping for the ball up against Alaves defender Victor Laguardia in the first half of their 1-1 draw on Saturday night, the Argentine striker – who arrived on a free transfer from Manchester City in the summer – felt agony in his chest.
After being replaced by Philippe Coutinho three minutes before half-time, the 33-year-old was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance for a medical examination. Aguero will have to undergo a full cardiac examination over the following three days to determine the degree of the problem, all while under the supervision of medical personnel.
SPORT claims that Sergio Aguero suffered from a heart rhythm issue, something he has previously experienced, while others have claimed that his heart rate was substantially higher than normal.
As a result, he will only be permitted to return until his position has been clarified, perhaps ruling him out of their match against Dynamo Kiev. After complaining of dizziness, the Argentine striker sought medical assistance just before halftime. In the 40th minute, there was growing dismayed in the crowd as Aguero lay flat on the pitch, having gone down moments after his hand was placed on his chest.
Barca’s medical team rushed onto the pitch to help Sergio Aguero and attempted to place him on a stretcher, but he ultimately got up and walked off the pitch unassisted. ‘I was told he was feeling a little dizzy,’ Barcelona’s caretaker coach Sergi Barjuan remarked after the game.
Focus As early as the 18th minute, Spanish television captured photos of Sergio Aguero showing signs of a muscular ailment. He looked to gesture to the bench later in the first half that he wanted to be pulled off.
He went down five minutes before halftime and was treated on the field by Barcelona doctors. Although the club has yet to issue an official statement, there was direct communication with Gerard Pique, who will miss the vital Champions League match against Dynamo Kiev due to a right knee injury.
With three games remaining, the Catalan giants are in third place in Group E, two points ahead of Dynamo but one behind second-placed Benfica and six behind leaders Bayern Munich.
