Sans son, Sergio ‘struggles’

London: Sergio Aguero adm-its it has been a struggle since splitting from wife, Giannina, who has taken their son Benjamin back to Buenos Aires.

Aguero, who joined Manc-hester City from Atletico Madrid in 2011, became an instant hero for supporters after he scored the 94th-minute winner in their final game of the season last May to secure the Premier League title.

However, following the sporting celebrations, Aguero later split with his wife, Giannina, the youngest daughter of Diego Maradona.

“In these last few months I've been trying to adapt mys-elf to a new stage of my life following my separation,” Agu-ero said. “It’s not easy after so many intense years living together with Gianni.

“During this period we gr-ew a lot as people and most importantly we have a product of this love, we had Ben, who is a blessing. This is what is harde-st for me, because Ben is in Buenos Aires and I am in Manchester.

“I try to be as professional as possible... But to be so far away from your child is not easy.”
