Sergio Aguero came under fire for his recent comments on Eduardo Camavinga during one of his live streams.
Shortly after Argentina secured the FIFA World Cup after beating France in penalties, the former Barcelona striker started a live stream, where he had disrespected French midfielder and Real Madrid starlet Eduardo Camavinga.
Aguero had called the youngster a ‘d***face’ during the live stream, after which he received massive criticism, especially from Real Madrid supporters.
However, in one of his recent streams, the retired footballer has put out a response to the criticism, indicating that the comment was made in the manner of a joke.
“First of all, I have nothing to say about him. Secondly, it’s a joke during a celebration. Also, if you search in ‘stream’, I always joke with his name. Don’t look for problems,” said Aguero (h/t SPORT).
Formerly of Manchester City, Aguero retired from professional football almost a year ago after he was diagnosed with a heart condition. He was playing for Barcelona at the time, but he had to quit the club due to the diagnosis.
Aguero has since been very active on social media and often organises live streams to talk to his fans. Responding further to his comments on Camavinga, the former Man City striker added: “You don’t understand that I have nothing against him. He’s a crack. It’s something I do as a joke as I do in my ‘streams’. Zero evil, brother. Peace and love.”
Aguero was present at the Lusail Stadium for the 2022 FIFA World Cup final between Argentina and France. He even celebrated with the Argentine team, including his close friend Lionel Messi after they secured a narrow victory over the French.
Real Madrid maintain full confidence in Turkish starlet despite injury woes
Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.
Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.
Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.
Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.
The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.
No loan deal for Guler
However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.
Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.
Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.
They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
