Argentine striker Sergio “Kun” Agüero said he arrived at Barcelona “with the expectation of playing alongside Leo (Messi)” and confessed that when he found out that his friend would go to Paris Saint Germain “it was a moment of shock.”
“Let’s be honest. What player doesn’t want to be at Barça? I would say that most footballers would like to wear this shirt, no matter how good or bad Barça is. I arrived with the expectation of playing with Leo and of that a good team be put together, which was what the club tried to do “, Agüero pointed out in an interview with the Spanish newspaper The country.
The former Manchester City player, recovered from a tendon injury in his inner calf in his right leg, could make his debut this weekend in the LaLiga match against Valencia at the Camp Nou. “When they called me I thought: I don’t care what they pay me. I get well and I’m going to help the team as much as I can,” he said.
Asked how he found out about Messi going to PSG, Agüero revealed that it was a shocking situation. “It was a moment of shock. He was very sick. When I found out I couldn’t believe it. That day I went to see him at his house. And, because of my personality, since I didn’t see him well, I tried to make him forget what he was doing. It had happened. I saw that he was half off and I was trying to distract him. I told him about my Esports team. And the things we were doing, “recalled the forward of the Argentine National Team.
After the friendly match on Wednesday against Cornellá, in which he scored a goal, “Kun” Agüero has many possibilities to play “a few minutes” in the clash against Valencia for the ninth date, as published this Thursday by the newspaper Mundo Sports.
