They’ve been close friends for 17 years, ever since they met at a national team training camp. Photo credit: Alamy At the time, Aguero was with Argentina’s under-16s, while Messi was preparing for the South American under-20s championship. Former Atletico Madrid forward Sergio Aguero recalled their meeting years later. “I quietly asked him, “What’s your name again?” He replied, “Leo.” ‘No,’ I said. ‘How do I address you?’ And he laughed as he said, “Lionel.” ‘And what is your surname?’ ‘Messi.'” ‘You don’t know who it is,’ my two friends said to me.” Both players became friends after that. Finally, after years of competing against each other at their respective clubs, Messi and Aguero would become Barcelona teammates. So they reasoned. It was announced in May 2021 that Aguero would join Barcelona on a free transfer from Manchester City. In an interview with Jose Alvarez, Aguero recently expressed his surprise at his friend’s departure. “How did I learn about Messi’s departure from Barcelona?” I was drinking mate with Ibai when suddenly… he looks at the phone and says to me, ‘No, is this true?’ and shows me the phone with the official Barça announcement.” “When Barcelona announced Messi’s departure, I thought someone had hacked Barça’s social networks,” Aguero added. I thought it was a joke at first.” Aguero retired months later due to a heart condition, and his close friend, Messi, said it “hurt” to see his international teammate call it a day. In an Instagram post, he stated: “Kun, you’ve practically spent your entire career together. We had beautiful moments and not-so-beautiful moments, but they all brought us closer together. ” And we’ll continue to live them together off the field “With the great joy of lifting the Copa America so recently, and all of your achievements in England. And the truth is that seeing how you have to stop doing what you enjoy the most because of what happened to you hurts a lot right now.” “Certainly you will continue to be happy because you are a person who transmits happiness, and those of us who love you will be with you,” Messi added. Now a new chapter in your life begins, and I am confident that you will face it with a smile and all the illusion that you put into everything. “Best wishes for this new chapter. I love you a lot, friend, and I’m going to miss being with you on the field and with the national team.”
