Aguero officially retired in March 2022 due to heart problems and prevented him from appearing at the 2022 World Cup as a player.
However, the former Barcelona and Manchester City player made a sudden appearance at the 2022 World Cup trophy hoisting ceremony.
Several sources said that Aguero could join the La Albiceleste squad because he was signed up as an assistant coach in the final match against France which took place at the Lusail Stadium, Qatar.
“Sergio Aguero has been officially registered by Argentina as assistant coach for the final, which means he has a FIFA World Cup winner’s medal,” Footbal.newz wrote on Instagram.
This news has not been confirmed because until now the AFA (Argentine Football Federation) has not released an official statement.
Temporary The Athletic revealed, Aguero had indeed been offered an assistant manager since retiring to Barcelona due to heart problems. However, the 33-year-old striker declined and said he wanted to rest.
Other sources state that Aguero only uses VIP passes and media that is specifically given to team legends.
