Catch of the day for ace Aguero


BY the smile on his face, it’s clear former striker Sergio Aguero is hooked on fishing, along with many other footballin­g stars.

The 33-year-old Argentinia­n’s fishing outfit included a blue neck protector, hat and £265 Versace swimming shorts.

Manchester City star Sergio, who retired in December due to heart problems, kissed his catch and said “1-0” then added: “Ciao, papito” – bye, daddy – and threw it back.

He was fishing with pals in Esquina in the Argentinia­n province of Corrientes.

Other footballer­s keen on angling include Paul Gascoigne who often went fishing in Euro 96 and once fell in the water.

Fellow England star John Terry has his own carp lake and Phil Foden missed a 2018 Prem title celebratio­n to fish with his dad. Cristiano Ronaldo caught the fishing bug off his home island of Madeira.

And Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovi­c has a tattoo of a koi carp on his back.
