Despite a flurry of reports that he’s considering a shocking return to professional soccer, former Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is insisting that he will remain retired.

Various media outlets reported that Aguero, who retired in 2021 due to a heart condition, is considering a comeback and will train with the Argentinean side Independiente. Aguero started his professional career with the club, which is currently being managed by his friend and former Argentina teammate Carlos Tevez.

“It’s totally a lie, I’m not going to train with Independiente,” Aguero said during a recent Twitch stream as reported by ESPN. “Sometimes things are invented. I reiterate that the cardiologist said that I am well, 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’s comments come after Tevez recently told the media that he would welcome Aguero to the club if he were to change his mind about playing professionally again.

Sergio Aguero is best known for his time with Manchester City, where he played between 2011 and 2021. He became the club’s all-time leading scorer with 260 goals during that time and helped City win 15 trophies, including five Premier League titles.

Aguero left City as a free agent in the summer of 2021 in order to sign with Barcelona. However, he only played five games for the La Liga powerhouse before a heart condition forced him to retire.
