Sergio Aguero was born to his parents, Leonel del Castillo and Adriana Aguero, on June 2, 1988.

He grew up in poverty around the sprawling suburbs of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

His father is the main reason Aguero has become one of the greatest figures in the world of soccer.

Leonel did everything he could to find work and support his family and primarily focused on improving his son’s soccer ability.

He started playing soccer at an early age and started his professional career at the Argentine club Independiente, becoming the youngest player (15 Y 35 D) to play in the Argentine Primera Division.

In 2006, he made a big move to La Liga, signing with Atletico Madrid, and won the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Super Cup.

The birth of the soccer player has its own story. Before he was born, the family of three, including Kun’s elder sister, had to spend two weeks sleeping on mattresses after their house was flooded.

After things started getting normal, Adriana’s water broke six and a half months into her pregnancy.

She was then rushed to the hospital, where she spent two months crying and alone.

During that period, Leonel worked hard to balance his work life, football, and looking after Jessica. But still, he managed time to visit his wife at the hospital.

At the time of Sergio’s delivery, there were complications, and the doctors had to perform episiotomy.

Although the boy’s life was a struggle from the time of his birth, his hard work and dedication to the sport made a career at the top level inevitable.

Besides, Kun Aguero has six siblings, two brothers, Gaston del Castillo and Mauricio del Castillo, and four sisters, Yesica, Gabriela, Maira and Daiana.

Guardiola broke down in tears while bidding farewell to the Argentine player. He said, “We love him so much – he is a special person for all of us. We cannot replace him.”

Following the event, Aguero’s father made some bold claims in an interview with Argentinian station Radio La Red.

“I don’t believe his tears. No, I don’t. For me, he never wanted [Aguero],” he said.

When asked if he thought the tears were for the cameras, he said: “Of course. He always wants to be the main man and not the players.”
