Aguero Taken to the Hospital for Cardiac Examination


The 33-year-old Argentinian appeared to be suffering breathing problems in the first half of Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Alaves. The striker was taken to the hospital for a cardiac examination after leaving the pitch early as the Catalunya club began life after Ronald Koeman.

Former Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero was making his first start at the Nou Camp since his summer transfer but he only lasted just 41 minutes. The 33-year old started feeling uneasy and discomfort in his chest, making it hard for him to breathe. Though he was able to walk away from the pitch by himself as he was replaced by Philippe Coutinho.

A tweet from Barcelona read: “@aguerosergiokun reported chest discomfort and has been admitted to the hospital for a cardiac exam.”

With the team’s former midfielder expected to take charge permanently, the interim coach took charge of the Sunday night game. Memphis Depay put Barca ahead four minutes after half-time but the hosts were unable to fully bounce back from successive defeats to Real Madrid and Rayo Vallecano as Luis Rioja swiftly equalised.
