Sergio Aguero letter post his retirement 

Sergio Aguero bids tearful adieu to his professional football career at the age of 33. Health issues have forced the Argentine striker to hang his boots and walk away after a successful football career. Emotional Sergio Aguero has penned a letter after he announced his retirement. 

In July end Aguero underwent stem cell treatment to prolong his football career. Later this year in October, during Barcelona’s match against Alaves he suffered chest pain and was sidelined for three years. With his health on the line, he has taken the brave choice to call off to play football.

Sergio Aguero posted his retirement letter on his social media accounts. The letter read: “I’ve always known that I’d give it all to have a chance to play again. However, after the last exams, I was advised by my doctors to cease practicing professional football. Their words were sufficient to make a choice. Retiring under these circumstances is difficult, but life comes first I’ve known that from the start.”

“One of the many things that football taught me is that you can turn defeat into victory. This won’t be any different. It’s surely painful – but it’s no tragedy. A tragedy would have been another thing altogether. My thoughts are not on the time I could have played on, they are on the wonderful 18 years I did get to play.”

“This amazing career will remain with me, and so will carrying it out with passion and dedication year after year. I keep the affection and care I received from each of the teams I played for when I was just a kid. And then at Independiente, Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Barcelona, and Argentina’s national team, always so dear to me. My recognition goes to the fans, who stood by me through thick and thin your support has made me stronger.”

“I want to thank all the trainers, team-mates, colleagues, staff, physios and managers who allowed me to develop my career in the best of conditions. My special gratitude goes to my family and friends, who were always by my side. And to my agents, the same I’ve kept since I was 14 years of age, who accompanied me with utmost professionalism and honesty.”

“Beyond the titles I’ve contributed to win – something I greatly value – my biggest achievement has been earning the respect of my colleagues, and the love from the world of football. That’s something that won’t change – I’ll keep it in my heart and it will make me strong for what’s to come.”

“Life goes on, and there’s plenty of it ahead. It will be a new stage, a different one indeed, but I’ll keep on just like I’ve done so far: always positive, with enthusiasm and joy. My love to all of you,” he concluded.
