The ex-Argentine star also confessed of being too scared to play or watch football in the wake of his cardiac arrhythmia diagnosis that forced him into an early retirement.
The City legend was left with little choice but to hang up his boots on the advice of medical professionals having made just four appearances for Barcelona beforehand.
Aguero said: “Today I want to play, but I’m scared. I trained all my life to the maximum and in big competitions. I don’t watch football or the news, I don’t care what’s going on.
“I concentrate on what I like the most, like friends. Returning to play comes into my head from time to time but I know it’s something I can’t do.”They told me I was lucky because I could easily have had a heart attack. Now it time to relax. I’m happy with what I’m doing.”In surprising but welcome news, Aguero has revealed he may have some part to play in Argentina’s preparations for the Qatar World Cup later this year.

Sergio Aguero bid farewell to professional football at the age of 33 in an emotional press conference at the Camp Nou.

His last game of competitive football came at the beginning of November last year for the Blaugrana after being substituted against Alaves following his chest complaints.
The complaints were later discovered to be an irregular heartbeat, though even in the immediate aftermath of his diagnosis a retirement announcement was not expected.
A month later a tearful Aguero sat at the Camp Nou informing the football world of his plans to stop playing in front of a number of different representatives from his former teams. City boss Pep Guardiola was in attendance as the prolific striker struggled to contain his emotion.
