SERGIO AGUERO has broken his silence over retirement rumours – and insists he will continue to follow the advice of professional medics.
And the Barcelona striker revealed he must take three months off due to his heart problems before reassessing his future.
Aguero, 33, was rushed to hospital after experiencing chest pains and breathing difficulties in Barca's 1-1 draw with Alaves on October 30.
A diagnosis is understood to have concluded the Argentine has an irregular heartbeat.
That led to a shock report in Spain suggesting the ex-Manchester City man would have to retire.
It stated 'the medical resonances and stress tests that he has undergone in recent days are detailing that the heart problem is more serious than it was initially valued' at first.
And Aguero took to Twitter on Friday to reassure fans he is taking the initial steps to recovery.
But the Barcelona free agent, who scored his first goal for the club in the El Clasico defeat, did not promise to make a return to the professional game.
Confirming he would need to take the required time off, he wrote: "Given the rumours, I tell them that I am following the indications of the club's doctors, doing tests and treatment and seeing my progress within 90 days. Always positive."

Aguero's former side City have rallied around their record 260-goal legend since his scare – with boss Pep Guardiola sending him a clear message that his health and the rest of his life is much more important than what is left of his career.
The Etihad chief said: “Of course, it is difficult news for everyone. But especially for him and his family.
“We wish him well, he knows it, from all the people at Manchester City.
“We wish him a speedy recovery, but it does not matter about the time. Health and life is much more important than anything else and he knows it.
“I’m pretty sure he is in very good hands, really good doctors will take care of him and he will take care of himself.
“And come back if he can – otherwise enjoy his life and enjoy what he has done. It depends, I am not a doctor.
“I don’t know precisely what he has, but be careful and be safe for the rest of his life.”
