For the 2022 World Cup in Argentina, Sergio Aguero has stated that he would like to join the Argentine coaching staff.
While still just 33 years old, Aguero was diagnosed with a cardiac issue while on loan at Barcelona earlier this season, which has left him unable to do any kind of physical activity.
Speaking to Radio 10, the former Man City striker said: “I am going to the Qatar World Cup. This week we are going to have a meeting. I want to be there.
“There is the idea of joining the coaching staff, I spoke with [Lionel] Scaloni and also with Chiqui Tapia. We have to try it, give it a spin.”
He continued: “I want to be there, but what happens if I get there? The reality is that if I go to the World Cup I’m going to be with the boys, I’m going to go to training.
“That’s not a problem. Clearly, I’m going to be there, I’m going to go. If it’s not with the national team, I’m going to go and I’m going to be with the boys. But I’m going to go a little bit to motivate them.”
Can the Argentines really win it?
“I’m not here today, but when the Copa America was won, the team was very confident,” he continued. “I think it’s also important that Scaloni has already found the team, the group a little bit.
“That makes it a little stronger in such short games. You have three group stage games and then elimination. Scaloni has experience as assistant coach in World Cups and as a player. That influences [things]. We are very good.”
