‘It sounds strange to me’ – Sergio Aguero blocked from visiting Argentina’s World Cup squad for ‘weird’ reason

SERGIO AGUERO has been blocked from visiting the Argentina squad at their training camp for the World Cup in Qatar.

The Manchester City legend retired from football last year and was expected to be part of his national side‘s coaching staff for the tournament.

Sergio Aguero has been denied access to the Argentina squad

However, he rejected the chance to be one of the coaches and now has not even been able to visit the squad.

Aguero ESPN: “I haven’t seen the national team yet. Hey, let’s see, but everything is kind of weird. Supposedly you have to have a credential to pass through.

“It sounds strange to me that it takes three or four days to arrange. I asked and was told the decision has come from above – but I see there are others who have been allowed in.

“It’s strange that they can’t give me the right credentials quickly.

“I’ve been in the national team and know they make a credential for you quickly. What do I know? I’m not going to bother. I’m going to wait for everything to finish.

“I wanted to go earlier, to wish them luck. The situation is rare. I’ve never done anyone wrong.

“I’ve always behaved well. Maybe there are people who don’t like being told bad things.

“It annoys me that others arrive the same day of their trip and suddenly they are in there. I sent a good luck message. If they don’t want me to go, it’s all good, but tell me to my face.”


Aguero has gone to Qatar as an Argentina fan after making the decision not to help coach the side that he played 101 times for.

He added: “The invitation to be part of Argentina staff was in the table.

“I spoke with Chiqui [Tapia, Argentina Football Association president] and I was clear with him about my goal to enjoy my time.”

He would have been left extra disappointed as Argentina were beaten in their World Cup opening game by Saudi Arabia.

Aguero also had a rough journey to Qatar as he found himself surrounded by Brazil fans on his flight over.

His former teammate Lionel Messi is also now shacking up alone in the team hotel, as he would usually stay with Aguero.

The bond between the two was so strong that Argentina decided not to make the PSG star share a room with someone else.
