Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager has shown concern and sympathy about and on former striker Sergio Aguero as regards his injury issues.

He has urged the striker to prioritise his health and be careful in his recovery from treatment for a suspected cardiovascular problem.

Aguero has only featured in two games only for his new club Barcelona since joining last summer in the transfer window.

“I sent a message to him through his agent,” Guardiola told a news conference on Tuesday. “It’s difficult news for him and his family.

“We wish him – everyone at Manchester City from the staff to the chairman, all the people – a safe recovery, doesn’t matter the time.

“Health is more important than anything else. I’m sure he’s in very good hands, with the best doctors.

“He will take care of himself. I wish him the best recovery as possible and he can come back to play again, otherwise he [can] enjoy his life and enjoy what he has done.

“I don’t know what he has, but now he knows it [that there is something wrong], he has to be careful and safe for the rest of his life.”

Kyle Walker has also joined Pep Guardiola in advising Sergio Aguero to prioritize his injury recovery over returning.

“It’s a shock when it happens to anyone,” Walker said. “I played with Christian [Eriksen]. You think about them and the family. I’m glad they’re okay.

“We’re all fit athletes and train hard every day. You have to take precautions and his health is more important than football at the minute.

“We’re all human in more ways than one. We make mistakes, we put in good performances. Health is key, without health you’re nothing.

“As long as Sergio’s okay… I know Christian is because I spoke to him a couple of weeks ago. I spoke to him on text, said I hope he’s okay.

“I played in the game at Spurs when [Fabrice] Muamba went down. Seeing it happen with a few people which isn’t nice.

“The main priority is health, [Aguero] should take as much time, being fit and healthy is the main priority.” he concluded.
