Zapping Goal! Football club FC Barcelona: the figures for the 2020-2021 season of Antoine Griezmann
It started yesterday with a Twitter post from Spanish journalist Gerard Romero: “Sergio Agüero is about to retire due to his heart problems”. From there, social networks got carried away, tributes were paid to Kun, in particular for having scored the title goal for Manchester City in 2012 against QPR (3-2) at the last second of added time of the last game of the season. Even his former teammate, Samir Nasri, explained in the evening that indeed, the Argentine striker was going to hang up his boots.
Only here, this is not the version of FC Barcelona! Asked last night at a press conference after the victory over Espanyol (1-0), Xavi explained: “What came out on Kün is not true. I hope he can continue to play football. We spoke to him these days and our information is not this ”. FCB Vice-President Rafa Yuste added: “I cannot confirm Agüero’s retirement. There is a three-month observation period for the medical services, that will be decided at that time ”. See you at the end of January since the attacker began his treatment after his exit against Alavès on October 30 (1-1).
