Sergio Aguero set to join Argentina coach Scaloni as part of his backroom staff

February 23rd, 2022 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Sergio Aguero said he is in talks with Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni to be a part of his backroom staff ahead of the World Cup.

Aguero suffered an arrhythmia while playing a league game with Barcelona on Oct. 30 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,” Aguero said. “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.”
