Agüero was unable to visit Argentina: “If they don’t want me to go, tell me to my face”

The Argentine team arrived at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, with the illusion of being able to win the title, and debuts this Tuesday, against Saudi Arabia, on the first date of Group C. In the months leading up to the event, there was talk of the possibility of that Sergio ‘Kun’ Agüero accompany the squad, after retiring prematurely in 2021, due to a heart problem, but in the end the proposal did not prosper. Now, even, the former player stated that the Argentine Football Association (AFA) put obstacles in his way to visit the ‘Albiceleste’.

As revealed by the remembered striker, in a conversation with actor Jero Freixas, the Argentine governing body told him that he had to have a special accreditation to enter the ‘bunker’ of the team led by Lionel Scaloni and that the processing process took several days. . The remaining time was not enough.

“The situation is very rare. A year ago I was there with them. I have been in the National Team and they make a credential for you quickly. People have come who wanted to be there and they did it for them ”, indicated the ‘Kun’. “Supposedly, it takes three to four days. I thought it was weird”insisted the former goalscorer, who then explained the reason why the AFA was able to prevent his entry.

“Why wouldn’t they want you to go?”Freixas asked him. “That is what i want to know. I don’t know. Perhaps you will not have liked once that I opined. It’s annoying that others arrive the same day of the trip and are already there. But, how did they make the credential in five hours and with me it takes five days, supposedly? My message was: ‘If they don’t want me to go, everything is fine, but they tell me to my face’”, Aguero replied.

“That’s it, it’s late, I wanted to see you before [a los jugadores de la selección]But well, we are Argentina and these things happen and we have to learn. I have no problem saying it. Things are kind of weird, strange, because I always behaved well and if there was something I didn’t like I would tell them. Maybe there are people who don’t like to be told bad things. There everything is medium rare and each one is spicy and no one is spicy. There will be time for things to be better, I suppose”concluded ‘Kun’, who revealed that he rejected an invitation from the Spanish team.
