Sergio Aguero, a Barcelona forward, has been diagnosed with arrhythmia and will have to undergo a comprehensive heart examination.
In the first half of Saturday night’s 1-1 draw with Alaves, the Argentine striker, who arrived on a free transfer from Manchester City in the summer, felt pain in his chest after jumping for the ball up against Alaves defender Victor Laguardia.
After being replaced by Philippe Coutinho three minutes before half-time, the 33-year-old was brought straight to the hospital in an ambulance for a medical check-up.
According to Marca, Aguero will have to undergo a full heart examination over the next three days to determine the degree of the problem, all while under the supervision of medical personnel.
According to the Catalan outlet SPORT, Aguero was suffering from a heart rhythm issue, something he has previously had, while others have claimed that his heart rate was substantially higher than normal.
As a result, he will only be permitted to return until his position has been clarified, perhaps ruling him out of their match against Dynamo Kiev.
After complaining of dizziness, the Argentine striker sought medical assistance just before halftime.
