Former Barcelona and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has addressed rumours claiming he is set to come out of retirement.

Following a heart ailment diagnosis, the Cityzens icon chose to hang up his boots in December 2021 while he was still at Barcelona. Aguero received an open invitation to return to the pitch from Carlos Tevez, his former Manchester City teammate and manager of Independiente, a premier team in Argentina.

Tevez expressed his desire to sign his ex-team-mate as he told reporters: “Who doesn’t want to have Kun? First me as a teammate, and now as a coach. Even if it’s 10 or 15 minutes.”

Aguero has subsequently denied reports that he had agreed to train with Independiente, and he also stated on Twitch that he would need to speak with his cardiologist before deciding whether or not to play again.

“It’s totally a lie, I’m not going to train with Independiente,” the former Argentina international said. “Sometimes things are invented. I reiterate that the cardiologist said that I am well and that it is important that I am in good health. But to return to training at the First Division level, I would need to undergo a lot of tests.

Aguero made his professional debut for Independiente in 2003 after completing the club’s youth programme. Before joining Atletico Madrid, where he finally made a name for himself as a top striker in the globe, he spent two years at El Rojo.

Following the first seven rounds of games, Tevez’s team has managed to accumulate 13 points, placing them third in their league. In a league matchup on Saturday, they will play their next game against Argentinos Juniors.
