Little more than five months have passed since Sergio Agüero announced his retirement from professional football, due to a health problem. In fact, ‘Kun’ is missed on the courts, but the one who seems to have suffered the most from his absence is Lionel Messi, one of his great friends.
“He is missed in everything. I concentrated with him, I was by his side all day, we got up together, we went to sleep together, and the truth is, yes, he is missed. Personally, I miss him a lot, but I think the group does too. Although he was already another ‘Kun’ and he was calmer, he always made himself known”, told ‘Leo’, in an interview with TyC Sports.
On the other hand, Messi, who attended the Argentine channel two days before the Finalissima against Italy at the mythical Wembley, recounted how he took the news of Agüero’s goodbye from the football fields and highlighted the attitude of ‘Kun’ to recover from the hard moment.
“We weren’t really aware of what happened to him, were we? At least I saw him from afar and I didn’t understand the situation until I was able to talk to him and I really saw that it could have been much worse. But he is a special person, he has a different personality from everyone and that made him take it the way he did. Obviously he will have suffered and cried alone or with his family, but luckily he quickly found another way and he’s fine, he looks good, he enjoys what he does, he does it without caring about anything because he doesn’t care about anything and says what he thinks . Having been through that situation, I guess he made it that way too and well, luckily he looks good on it.”he pointed.
Benzema, his candidate for the Ballon d’Or
Winning the Copa América with the Argentina team took a great weight off his shoulders. Now, Lionel Messi behaves with more confidence in front of the press, as he did on Monday, the day he revealed that Karim Benzema is his candidate for the Ballon d’Or.
“I think there are no doubts, it is very clear that Benzema had a spectacular year and ended up consecrating himself with the Champions League, being fundamental from the round of 16 onwards in all the games. I think there are no doubts this year.”pointed ‘Leo’.
