Barcelona players struggled to assimilate the news he will be out for at least three months
The Barcelona squad has been through a lot. Some of the veterans still feel the pain of previous defeats and the diseases that once ravaged these four walls. Those that didn't experience it, know, and have interiorised it as their own.
It's for that reason that the news on Sergio Aguero this week hit the squad's mood hard. Those that were close to him on the pitch when he first experienced chest pain were really scared. The Argentine striker could hardly express what he was feeling.
Aguero, who joined this summer on a free transfer after a year marked by Covid and injuries, had won the affection of the players and staff at Barça. Everyone asked the medics and the physios from the first moment how he was and then, after learning the treatment he would undergo, quickly got in touch with their teammate.
They haven't been together long, but long enough for Kun to be appreciated and respected at the same time as knowing that with him in his best form, the club's objectives would be a little easier than they are today.
