Aguero came off in Saturday’s home draw against Alaves and was taken to hospital with chest pains; the 33-year-old Barcelona striker will be unavailable for the next three months; Raheem Sterling sent message of support to his former Man City team-mate
Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero will be out for three months after suffering chest pains during Saturday’s match against Alaves.
The 33-year-old striker was withdrawn before half-time after receiving treatment for several minutes during the La Liga game at the Nou Camp, and underwent cardiac tests at hospital as a precautionary measure after leaving the ground in an ambulance.
In a tweet, Barcelona said: “He is unavailable for selection and, during the next three months, the effectiveness of treatment will be evaluated in order to determine his recovery process.”
Barcelona caretaker coach Barjuan said Aguero was “calm” after speaking to the player, who remains in hospital.
“I talked to him and he’s calm. He’s confined to his room but considering the situation he’s calm,” Barjuan said on Monday.
