Retired Aguero wants to go to the World Cup

Former footballer Sergio Aguero had revealed that he is in talks with Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni to be a part of his backroom staff ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.

Aguero suffered an arrhythmia while playing a league game with Barcelona in October last year and six weeks later, announced he had to retire from football at the age of 33 due to a heart condition.

Although his wish of playing in a fourth World Cup is over, Aguero is hopeful he can help Argentina lift the trophy in a different role.

“I want to go to the World Cup,” said Aguero.

“I spoke to Scaloni. He called me…the lads as well.

“We are looking to have a meeting this week and see what can be done.. There is the idea that I could be a part of the backroom staff. If I go, I would be able to be with the players and be in the training sessions.”

Aguero, who won the Copa America with Argentina in 2021, would have been considered by Scaloni for the tournament in Qatar.

Argentina have qualified for the 2022 World Cup and are unbeaten in qualifying.
