Raheem Sterling sends message of support to former Man City teammate Sergio Aguero
Manchester City star Raheem Sterling has taken to social media on Sunday evening, to send a message of well-wishes to Sergio Aguero.
The name of Argentine hitman Aguero has of course taken centre stage in the media over the last 24 hours.
This, unfortunately, though, has come for altogether concerning reasons.
First, during Barcelona’s La Liga meeting with Alaves on Saturday night, the 33-year-old, in from the off, went to ground in alarming fashion off the ball, seemingly struggling for breath whilst clutching his chest:
Concerning scenes near the end of the first half at Camp Nou, but thankfully Sergio Aguero was able to leave the pitch without the need for a stretcher 🙏

In turn, Aguero was hauled from the field of play, before being taken to a nearby hospital.
On the back of their 1-1 stalemate with Alaves coming to a close, the Blaugrana subsequently confirmed that the former Manchester City star had reported ‘an episode of chest discomfort’, resulting in a round of cardiac tests:
Kun Agüero ha referido un episodio de malestar torácico y ha sido trasladado al hospital para realizarse un estudio cardiológico.

And if the latest word stemming from the Spanish media is anything to go by, then such examinations did not exactly give rise to the desired outcome, amid claims that Aguero is suffering with an arrhythmia of the heart:

‘All with you’
In turn, eyes have remained firmly fixed on the Camp Nou, as the Barcelona faithful, and neutrals alike, await an update on Aguero’s wellbeing.
And, as outlined above, on Sunday evening, one of the veteran attacker’s former teammates has sent a message of support the way of the Barca star.
Taking to his official Twitter account, Manchester City wide-man Raheem Sterling reached out to Aguero, urging his close friend to ‘stay strong’ and ‘get well soon’:
Stay strong my brother @aguerosergiokun, we’re all with you. Get well soon 💙 pic.twitter.com/bjKztuzWTA
