Scandal in the Argentina camp – Football world – World Cup

Former Argentina striker Sergio Aguero has criticized his country’s football association after he was denied access to the team’s World Cup training facility. This happened before the team’s first match against Saudi Arabia (1:2).

Aguero scored 41 goals in 101 games for Argentina, representing them at three World Cups and helping them win the 2021 Copa America – their first major title in 28 years.

The 34-year-old said he wanted to wish his compatriots well before they begin their campaign but was told the necessary accreditation could not be arranged in time to meet his former colleagues.

“I haven’t watched the Argentina team yet. Let’s see what happens, it’s all a bit weird. You’re supposed to have an credential to get in… It sounds weird that it takes three or four days to settle.

If they don’t want me there, no problem, but tell me to my face. I have never offended anyone, I have always behaved well. Maybe there are people inside who didn’t like something I said. I don’t even remember,” Aguero said in a YouTube live stream.

“I asked and they told me that the decision comes from above, but I see that other people have been allowed inside. I have been with the Argentina team before and they arrange letters of credit quickly.

I haven’t seen my friends yet. I’m waiting for someone from the federation to call me to say something… It’s a strange situation,” Aguero added.
