Sergio Aguero’s physician has refuted claims that Covid or the vaccine was to blame for the former Manchester City striker’s heart troubles.

Last week, Aguero was forced to retire from football, revealing his decision in a sad press appearance at the Camp Nou on Wednesday.

The Argentine had only joined Barcelona from Manchester City in the summer, but his last game against Alaves in October saw him leave the field before being taken to hospital with chest pains.

Having undergone cardiological tests, it was confirmed Aguero had suffered a heart arrhythmia, with City’s all-time top scorer taking the decision to retire from playing shortly after.

Aguero was treated by cardiologist Roberto Peidro, who initially worked with the striker in 2004 when he was diagnosed with heart palpitations when he was a child.

Peidro disclosed that the problem was caused by a small scar near the heart after a cardiac ablation, while Aguero’s problems prompted speculation that they were linked to Covid or the vaccine – speculations that were rapidly debunked.

“He has a very small scar in his heart area which is less than a millimetre which is why it sort of short-circuits and causes those arrhythmias,” Peidro told Argentine radio per The Mirror.

“What was done using a catheter was to burn that area where the arrhythmias were coming out.

“We think it’s going to work very well and solve the problem but our advice is that he shouldn’t do high-performance sport that involves an important degree of mental and physical stress several hours a day.”

The surgery is claimed to help with irregular heartbeats, which Aguero has had since he was a child.

Despite not being able to continue his career, Peidro was eager to emphasize that Aguero will be able to live a normal life.

He also feels a virus caused the tiny scar, but not Covid-19 or the vaccine.

“The most common scenario is that the small scar found is produced by a virus he’s suffered at some point in his life and wasn’t ever detected,” Peidro continued.

“However, it is unrelated to Covid or the Covid vaccine.”

“I didn’t speak to anyone before Sergio announced his retirement since it was part of my professional obligation of secrecy, but he authorized me to speak to the media and explain things.”

“His decision to retire from professional football was a joint one. He was quite worried, and the first thing I said when I got the test results was, ‘If you were my son, I would advise you to go this path.’

With 260 goals in all competitions during his nine years at Manchester City, Aguero became the club’s all-time leading scorer.

During his career in England, he won six League Cups, five Premier League crowns, and the FA Cup.
