I made this choice because of my health, which comes first. You already know that this is due to what happened a month and a half ago. I was in the good hands of the doctors, who recommended the best solution for me: to stop playing. I made this decision ten days ago. I would like to tell you that I did my best to find out if there was any hope, but it was not great, "Kuhn Aguero began.

When Joan and the whole team contacted me, it was amazing. I knew I was coming to one of the best clubs in the world. They treated me very well," he continued.Of course, I also thank the Argentine national team, which I love the most. Thank you to those who are here, to my family and to the people who worked with me. Also to my teammates in Independiente and those in Barça. I think I did my best to help the team. Thanks to those who helped me grow. I leave with my head held high. I do not know what awaits me in the future, but I know that there are many people who want the best for me. Thanks to all the journalists who came. Both those who treated me well and those who did not treat me well. The truth is that I am leaving with very good memories.
