How is the plan that Independiente launched to convince Kun Agüero of his return to Red


The words of the former soccer player resonated strongly in Avellaneda. President Fabián Domán initiated contacts to bring the parties together.

"I'm going to get physically well to see if I can be here for six months. We're going to wait. There are several clubs that want me, I also have Independiente. If I'm physically well, I would play for Red, clearly. At least one farewell game on the Independiente court. We are going to do it

. "

Sergio Agüero

, a little jokingly and quite seriously, blurted out those words almost in passing in a stream of the 'Yellow Night', the party in Barcelona in Ecuador to which he was a star guest.

And in Avellaneda his voice sounded like the most marvelous music to the ears of leaders and fans, who immediately ignited the illusion of seeing Kun once again dressed as the Devil.

15 months have passed since the star who emerged from the red youth squad, who later made a run for the Argentine National Team, Atlético Madrid and Manchester City, set foot on a soccer field for the last time officially.

It was that fateful October 30, 2021 when, stuffed with the clothes of Barcelona of Spain, he grabbed his chest and threw himself to the floor with a face of shocking fright.

In December of that year, after a battery of cardiological studies,

Agüero announced his retirement

in the midst of an anguish that invaded all soccer fans in Argentina and the entire world.

The former striker plunged into the world of virtual games (he formed his own brand) and streaming and thus spends his days away from the ball, which was his faithful friend for much of his life.

But Kun still has the footballer's bug inside him.

His goodbye was so abrupt due to health reasons (he was forced to leave his professional activity due to an arrhythmia) that his plans for the future were cut short.

On his horizon he saw a return to Independiente to close his career and, of course, a proper farewell on the pitch.

Well, calmer now, that idea resurfaced and began to turn around in his head.

What he said in dialogue with comedian Jero Freixas, I confess a fan of Red, was not accidental.


was able to find out that

contacts between the Avellaneda club and him began a few days ago to reactivate the link and try to bring Kun closer to the institution


Can the fans hope with the possibility of seeing Agüero play at least one semester in Independiente?

That door is not quite closed, but almost.

And not because the leadership commanded by Fabián Doman or the former player himself do not want to.

But because that is exclusively subject to being able to receive authorization from the team of cardiologists and specialists that supervises it.

And today it seems difficult that the doctors can give permission for him to compete again at such a demanding level.

For now it is somewhat unlikely, although at the same time no one dares to rule it out definitively.

What everyone does see as something to do is a farewell party so that he can have his special night with his soccer friends and supporters.

"I heard what he said and from here we are at his disposal for whatever he wants. I can't say if he's going to play again because that would be generating great hope. But whether it's for that or for a farewell game, Kun has the doors of the club are open", assured Doman to this newspaper.

The red president put a very trusted relative of the Board of Directors to personally deal with following and nurturing the link with Agüero, which had cooled in recent years.

The leadership intention is for Kun to feel part of Independiente from the place he wants.

What results from that will be seen.

For now, the Kun Agüero operation was launched in Avellaneda.

Everyone expects him to succeed to see him even if he is once again on the field with the shirt he loves the most.
