The unknown Aguero

Injured moderately in August, when he suffered a muscle tear in the inner calf of his right leg, Sergio Agüero is closer to his debut as a Barça player, Although he has not yet been seen training with the group in any video provided by the club and the next game is on October 17 against Valencia. This Wednesday, Barça did show some images of the player accelerating the set-up with reaction and sprint sessions in a specific solo training session.

Kun is therefore an absolute unknown, because it comes from being almost unemployed for a year. Muscle, knee injuries, and even the coronavirus, prevented him from having continuity in his last season at Manchester City, where he played a testimonial role and was only able to complete 90 minutes. He barely played 20 games, eight as a starter. In those 20 times, yes, he scored six goals, which confirms his status as a prestigious scorer with the asterisk of injuries in a footballer who has already reached 33 years of age.

Agüero was left in a strange limbo when Messi’s departure to PSG was confirmed in early August. Despite the fact that the Argentine had offered himself to the three candidates for the presidency of Barça, it was Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany who ended up giving the definitive yes to give a definitive wink to Messi. Agüero was going to be a support for Messi in the locker room, after the departure of his best friend, Luis Suárez, a year earlier. And Messi was going to be Kun’s cicerone in the booth. But everything was broken, there was even speculation about the possibility that Agüero would go out in the summer market without even playing an official game. As in the cases of Messi or Suárez, MLS is a medium-term goal for the former Independiente and Atlético de Madrid player.

Circumstances, however, have made Agüero’s reappearance an emergency. Griezmann’s departure, Braithwaite’s injury, Ansu’s recovery process and Luuk de Jonn’s disappointing start make the Argentine look like hope. Koeman needs effectiveness and a specialist to solve the area. That has been Agüero’s trade throughout his career.

Two things are expected from Agüero. That physically he is one hundred percent despite his 33 years; and find the motivation to be someone important in the dressing room and on the team. Maybe he also has the challenge of getting to the World Cup with Argentina on time; And for that he needs to play two good seasons with Barça, with whom he signed a contract also based on variables (matches, goals) that will not allow him to see them coming. Although, at this point, Agüero is not a question of money but of pride and personal prestige. For now, the first step is the comeback.
