Sergio Aguero suffered an irregular heartbeat against Alaves, and Barcelona decided to refer him to a specialist.
It seems that Barcelona already knew that Argentine striker Sergio Aguero was suffering from minor heart problems.
Aguero was forced to leave the field in the 41st minute of his team’s match against Alaves in the 12th round of the Spanish League, after he felt clearly unwell.
Barcelona confirmed that Aguero suffered from chest tightness, and that the Argentine was transferred in an ambulance to Barcelona Hospital to undergo a heart disease examination, according to the protocol stipulated in these cases.
Barcelona did not add more information about the condition of Aguero, who is still under observation, pending further diagnostic tests.
The Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” confirmed that Aguero suffered from an irregular heartbeat, and that the Argentine had already had similar attacks in some previous chapters of his career.
The interesting thing is that the Spanish newspaper confirms that Barcelona was aware of Aguero’s heart condition, and it was expected that there was a possibility of a recurrence of that case.
This comes despite Aguero having successfully passed the mandatory medical examination, and it was decided to go ahead with the deal, with the belief that the player will always be in control and there will be no further concerns.
Now, after the difficult time he had last Saturday, there is concern within Barcelona about Aguero’s situation, and they don’t want to risk it.
Therefore, Barcelona decided that the Argentine would undergo a comprehensive cardiac examination, and with the results shown by the comprehensive tests, the club will make a decision regarding Aguero’s return to physical activity.
Barcelona does not want the slightest chance of taking a risk with the Argentine, as medical protocols related to cardiology suggest.
