2022 World Cup: Aguero blocked from visiting Messi, other Argentina players


Sergio Aguero has revealed he was barred by the Argentine FA from visiting Lionel Scaloni’s squad at their 2022 World Cup training base.

The 34-year-old who won 101 caps for his country had arrived in Qatar to support Lionel Messi and Co.

But Aguero was informed that the right accreditation could not be arranged in time for him to meet the squad.

“I haven’t seen the national team yet. 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.

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

Aguero had to retire from football earlier this year due to a heart condition.
