Day Aguero returned to football 

Share

Sergio Aguero was back in a Man City kit on Wednesday – and didn’t take long to square up to an opponent as his team lost its opener at The Soccer Tournament.The Argentine, 36, retired in 2021 due to a heart condition but returned to the pitch for the 7-on-7 tournament on Wednesday leading his aptly-named Aguero FC.
But it wasn’t the return to sky blue he would’ve hoped for as his team fell 6-3, with the Argentine star coming face to face with an opponent from Say Word FC in the second half as tensions rose.
Aguero and the opponent appeared to exchange some tense words before Say Word’s goalie stepped in – before one of the forward’s Team Aguero teammates escalated the situation by pushing the opponent Aguero was clashing with..
The legendary striker attempted six shots in the match but failed to score as Say Word notched a surprising win in front of a smattering of City supporters.
While Aguero is the only ex-City player on his team for the tournament, the English club are certainly involved with his participation there.
Aguero’s team entered the field in the club’s 2024-25 kits, and a display behind one of the fields features the Premier League trophy and a picture of Aguero’s iconic title-winning goal vs. QPR.
The squad will play once more on Wednesday nightbefore facing off against former Man United star Nani and his Nani FC on Wednesday.
The Soccer Tournament, in its second year, awards a $1million winner-take-all prize in both its men’s and women’s brackets.
This year, squads, representing Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Burnley, Inter Milan, Villareal and Wrexham have traveled to North Carolina to compete. 
Former NFL star J.J. Watt even suited up for Burnley (which he part-owns with his wife, Kealia), while Marco Materazzi and Guiseppe Rossi took the field as well.
