Sergio Aguero: Barcelona star admitted to hospital for ‘heart exam’ after chest pain during match
| Today Headlines | Local News
The 33-year-old received treatment on the pitch after being seen holding his chest moments before half-time and was subsequently substituted during the break.
Medics treated Aguero while he was lying on his back, but the player was able to leave the pitch himself.
“I was told he was feeling a little dizzy. I just heard he was taken to hospital and I can’t say more until I know,” said the Barcelona’s interim coach Sergi Barjuan after the game.
Former Aguero club Manchester City posted a message on Twitter wishing the striker good luck.
“Everyone at Manchester City wishes you a speedy recovery,” it read. “We are with you.”
Aguero was making his first steps at Camp Nou since his summer transfer from the Premier League club.
The forward is recovering from an injury while Barcelona have had a poor start to the season.
Ronald Koeman was sacked from his managerial post last week due to the team’s poor form, with the club currently languishing in ninth in La Liga.
