Barcelona’s Sergio Aguero faces three months
Barcelona striker Sergio Aguero has been ruled out for three months after he suffered with “chest pain” in their match against Alaves on Saturday.
Aguero was taken to hospital for tests after feeling discomfort in his chest during Barcelona’s 1-1 draw.
The club said the 33-year-old was “struggling with chest pain” before being withdrawn for Philippe Coutinho in the 42nd minute, having gone down on the pitch and received medical attention.
Ahead of their Champions League match against Dynamo Kiev, Barcelona interim head coach Sergi Barjuan said on Monday: “Yesterday, I spoke with Kun and he is relaxed. He is confined to his room, but relaxed.”
A club statement on Monday evening then read: “The first team player Sergio Aguero has been subjected to a diagnostic and therapeutic process by Dr.Josep Brugada.
“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.”
Aguero later posted on social media: “I am well and in good spirits to face the recovery process. I want to thank you all for so many messages of support and love that make my heart stronger today.”
