Three days after the debut of the Argentine team in the seventh chapter of the World Cup in Qatar, a year has passed since the retirement of Sergio Aguero. He didn’t decide, in fact he was forced to hang up his boots due to an arrhythmia that prevented him from completing his career and, above all, from competing in this World Cup. The Kunwas one of the survivors, along with Lionel Messi, angel of mary Y Nicola Otamendi– The generational change implemented by the technical director Lionel Scaloni. Four months after raising the file America’s Cup 2021 and after finalizing the step of Manchester City a Barcelona with 33 years and a clause of 100 million euros who sheltered him for two years, the story of his life took an unexpected turn.
His career has cinematic scenes. Any director could shoot his biopic with some fundamental moment as a trigger. If it were a blockbuster for Hollywood, the tension necessary for the initial impact would prove it collapsed in the Camp Nou due to heart failure in the middle of a Barcelona – Alaves. A documentary would go through the clay courts of the suburban neighborhoods of Buenos Aires where it began to shape the characteristics with which the Atletico Madrid paid 23 million euros. The series of him on Netflix could start before that step, the day of his debut in Before Independentin view of Saint Lawrencejust one month and five days after turning 15.
The plot of any of your movies or series it would never falter. He was the son of Diego Maradona – is the father of Benjaminthe son with whom he has Janine– and in every club he’s played in, he’s loved. Independiente has been waiting for his return since he left; At Atlético his 74 goals in 175 games and two titles – the UEFA Europa League and the Super Cup – are always remembered and for Manchester City It’s an emblem that your film could have to replace the documentary you’ve already dedicated to it. The friendship with Messi, which began in the youth era and continued for decades in the bittersweet Major, led him to a typical comedy misunderstanding: he signed for Barcelona to play alongside his friend just when the paris saint germain he took the rosary.
The origin of Kun Agüero
“I told him: prop up the goalkeeper’s belly because it hurts and then he won’t want to save them when you give him another kick, he’ll be afraid of you”was one of his father’s first recommendations, Leonel Castillo, who stopped playing in neighborhood tournaments to take his son who played three on Sunday. Everyone realized that their son had the potential to do more than just play ball with friends. No prognosis was wrong: After retirement, he lives in a $15 million Miami mansion with nine bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, an oceanfront pool, and amenities inversely proportional to the bare brick house attached to the corner. of the road. in the heart of the neighborhood The eucalyptuss of Quilmes, from which he ran away to play.
Kun is Agüero and not Del Castillo for bureaucratic reasons. When he was born, his mother, Adriana Agüero, was 17 and his father 19. According to what they were told in Buenos Aires -they were already the parents of Jessica, born in Tucumán-, they could not write their first boyfriend with the surname paternal, because he was a minor. That is why Sergio is the only one of the seven brothers of the marriage with a different surname. “I played the adult tournaments, and he was always on the sidelines kicking the ball”, recalls Del Castillo, who didn’t give him the surname, but gave him the tricks. Although it was category 88, the course for baby soccer clubs started with 86, then 87 and then, a little more tired, in the one that corresponded to it. So every Saturday and also on Sunday. Until the arrival of the engagement at Independiente.
When he was old enough to play in AFA tournaments, the family came to Red after two rejections. the first of wool: she didn’t want it because of her height. after that of Quilmes, had to be a member to sign and the possibility was not within the family budget. At the Avellaneda club where he made his debut Pre Novena and he was champion. In Ninth, the same. She didn’t have much time to keep adding titles below: Oscar Ruggeri he hung the medal of his debut in the First Division on his back, with 15 years just turned and 34 little remembered, he let him enter for the first time. The explosion came some time later with Giulio Falcioni as a coach and Bochinos 10. Before making the leap to Europe, there were 36 games and 18 goals, including one in a classic in which he made a fool of himself Diego Cross three times before taking the shot and celebrating his goal, the fourth in the win against racing.
Europe and National
He was a youth champion with Francisco Ferraro’s Under 20 team in the 2005 World Cup and Hugo Tocalli in 2007. The former as a professional at Independiente and the latter, formerly at Atlético Madrid. Left out of the list you have completed Nestor Pekerman for the World Cup he organized Germany in 2006 and added his first matches in subsequent qualifiers, capped by Alfio Basile. He was champion in chinese olympics game in 2008, with the guidance of Sergius the Baptist. The doors of the Maggiore could not have better preambles.
However, his decade-plus cycle has only returned to a top-place finish in the last of the competitions he has played. The world cup in south africa in 2010 he finished in the quarterfinals, same case as the following America’s Cup which took place in our country the following year. The dream of Brazil 2014 ended up in the final, with a defeat against Germany. The same thing happened in America’s Cup 2015 that the Albiceleste has lost kilossame as the following, the edition Centenary which was disputed in United States of America. Then, the return of Russia in the round of 16 World Cup 2018 and third place in the Copa América 2019. He was only able to lift the cup in Brazil, when he defeated the host and won the highest title organized by Conmebol.
In parallel, success enthroned him at City: 15 titles with heavenly from Manchester. His stay in England is summed up with the goal in the 93rd minute, with 20 seconds, which allowed his team to become Premier League champions after 44 years without success. It was the 3-2 victory over Queen Park Rangers that wrested the title from none other than United. “It was the most important goal of all the ones I scored”, supposed. He returned to Spain, this time to Barcelona, with the maturity of the stars. He was no longer the 17-year-old boy they’d bet on – without fail – at the club mattress.
Streaming Retreat and Resurrection
“I almost stroked. It had already happened to me in training: I’m starting to feel bad. Headache, I was crushing and I was breathing badly. It lowered my blood pressure, something like that. I wanted to talk and I couldn’t. I grab the hand of the defender (rival, from Alavés) and tell him: stop the game. The referee stopped the match, the dizziness disappeared, but an arrhythmia started”, says Agüero himself on his Twitch channel, a platform where users can broadcast live, as if it were television. So he said Charles Tevez.
After his retirement, Agüero turned to the digital universe. In addition to his Twitch channel – which also replicates on YouTube – he has a team eSports –KRU Sports– and even has its own portion of the metaverse: a virtual space, parallel to real life, in which its community kuniverse You can buy the 9,320 avatars available – the same figure that makes up the minute 93:20 so paradigmatic for Manchester City – but above all meet other users, play games, share music and interact with Agüero or other invited streamers.
Something similar to what he did in the middle of the World Cup, when before the match against the Netherlands he managed to break the historical code of football: the secret of footballers in the middle of the conference, forced to hold a 15-minute press conference to address concerns of journalists. It was almost an hour of chatting with Messi, the Papua Gomez, Rodrigo De Paul Y Leandro Paredes. A milestone that has been reproduced on television channels, social networks, newspapers and magazines. He has 50 million followers spread across his channels contraction, Youtube, Chirping Y Facebook and a mass floating in discord and its metaverse.
His new role has already overtaken the footballer. Like it Quique Wolf is a person who talks about football on television; or Mario Kempes, the voice of the comments of a well-known football match, without many generations knowing that they are footballers from another era, Agüero has become a streamer. The journey that began as a teenager in Independiente’s First Division and which had a dramatic point of arrival, has taken another direction, virtual and off the field, which guarantees him to remain a protagonist. He has many scenes before they were broadcast on television and now he generates them.
