Raheem Sterling and Manchester City sent messages of support to Sergio Aguero after the Barcelona striker felt 'chest discomfort' during the weekend's 1-1 draw with Alaves.

The former City man was taken to the hospital with the club later confirming that he had undergone a cardiac exam after complaining of discomfort in his chest.

Interim Barcelona manager Sergi Barjuan said the Argentine felt "a little dizzy" when substituted. "Aguero was taken away," Barjuan explained to Movistar following the game.

"I have asked him. He told me he was a little dizzy. I have found out now that they have taken him to the hospital to see what he really has. I do not know any more."

Aguero's former City teammate Raheem Sterling sent a message of support to the Argentine star on Twitter on Sunday. "Stay strong my brother [Sergio Aguero], we’re all with you," he wrote. "Get well soon."

City also posted a message of support for their former hero. "Everyone at Manchester City wishes you a speedy recovery," the tweet read.

Marca reported on Sunday that Aguero was expected to remain in the hospital for the coming few days as the doctors tried to diagnose what the problem is, while Sport reported that initial examinations found arrhythmia - a condition where the heart beats with an irregular rhythm.

Aguero missed the start of the season for Barcelona with a calf injury and now looks set to spend an extended spell on the sidelines given the serious nature of his issue.
