'My eyes fill with tears' – Aguero seen playing football for first time since retiring with heart issue to fans' delight | The Sun

SERGIO AGUERO returned to the football pitch this week in a five-a-side kickabout in Miami.

The striker, 34, was forced to retire last December after being diagnosed with a heart condition.

That cut short his Barcelona dream after only signing for the Spanish giants last summer.

But he donned a Barca kit in Miami as he strutted his stuff at Stadio Soccer.

Highlights of the game show Aguero has not lost his poaching ability either with many of his goals coming from close range.

And Twitter users watching the footage were delighted to see the Argentine back in action.

One wrote: "My eyes fill with tears."

Another added: "Things you do love to see ❤️"

And Aguero was left stunned by Karim Benzema's goalscoring performance in the semi-final first leg.

The Real Madrid striker scored two brilliant goals including a panenka penalty to leave Aguero gobsmacked.
