Sergio Aguero passes medical and will make sensational return to football

Ser­gio Aguero has passed a “sat­is­fac­to­ry med­ical check” and has decid­ed to play foot­ball for the first time in 15 months.

Aguero was sent off in the 42nd minute in his first start for Barcelona last sea­son against Alaves and was tak­en to hos­pi­tal with dif­fi­cul­ty breathing.

Near the end of the first half, the for­mer Man­ches­ter City man strug­gled and was on the ground after col­lid­ing with an oppo­nent in the box.

Aguero got up and was assist­ed off the pitch but was unable to return to train­ing due to ongo­ing treat­ment and checks and was diag­nosed with a career-end­ing heart condition.

Agüero, 33 years old and hav­ing played just 165 min­utes for Barça, end­ed his pro­fes­sion­al career because of an arrhyth­mia found dur­ing a medical.

A year and three months after that match, Aguero returned to the pitch at Ecuado­ri­an club Barcelona Sport­ing Club.

The Ecuado­ri­an club has a name and coat of arms inspired by Blau­grana, as Span­ish immi­grant Eutimio Pérez found­ed the club after his home­town of Barcelona.

“I’m real­ly look­ing for­ward to going there and hav­ing fun,” explained Aguero, who will play in the team’s friend­ly match “Yel­low Knight” this month.

“I had a check-up at a psy­chi­a­trist, I’m feel­ing great, and I’ve already start­ed train­ing, so I think I’ll be able to com­pete in Yel­low Nights.”

I want to ‘have fun’ and ‘feel the pitch again’.In 15 days I have a game with my friends in Barcelona, Spain, so I will be able to play.”

Aguero added that spend­ing time with South Amer­i­can fans dur­ing the World Cup helped con­vince him to play as a guest at a club that had nev­er been rel­e­gat­ed from the coun­try’s top league.
