It hurts a lot – Lionel Messi reacts as Sergio Aguero suddenly retires from football

Paris Saint-Germain attacker, Lionel Messi has reacted to his friend and former national teammate Sergio Aguero’s sudden retirement from playing football.

The Argentine paid tribute to the Barcelona striker who was forced to announce his retirement from football on Wednesday.

Aguero had joined Barcelona last summer before Messi left the Catalan side for Paris Saint-Germain with high hopes of playing alongside Messi but he had heart problem which led to his earlry retirement.

Messi, in a message he penned to Aguero on Wednesday, wrote:

“Practically a whole career together. We’ve had some great moments and others that weren’t so great, but all of them have made us grow closer and become better friends. And we’re going to continue spending them together off the pitch,” Messi wrote in an Instagram post.

“With the great joy of lifting the Copa America just a little while ago, with all the achievements you obtained in England…. And the truth is that now it hurts a lot to see how you have to stop doing what you love the most because of what happened to you.

“I’m sure you will continue to be happy because you are a person who radiates happiness and those of us who love you will be there for you. Now a new stage of your life is beginning and I am convinced that you will enjoy it with a smile on your face and with all the enthusiasm that you put into everything.

“All the best in this new stage! I love you very much my friend, I’m going to miss being with you on the pitch and when we meet up with the national team.”
