Aguero was selected to represent the senior team in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the 2011 Copa América, the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the 2015 Copa América, and the Copa América Centenario, reaching the finals of the latter three tournaments.

He also participated in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where he scored his first and second World Cup goals for Argentina, and the 2019 Copa América.

Personal Life

Kun married Gianinna Maradona, the youngest daughter of Argentine footballer Diego Maradona. On 19 February 2009, Gianinna gave birth to their son, Benjamín, in Madrid.

Maradona was there for the birth of his first grandson, while Aguero, then 20, missed Atlético’s training session earlier in the day. Atlético offered their congratulations in a statement on their official website. However, Aguero and Gianinna separated in 2012 after four years together.

Aguero’s nickname “Kun”, which features on his shirt, dates back to his childhood.

It was first given to him by his grandparents, due to a resemblance to the character “Kum-Kum”. The character was from Aguero’s favourite cartoon show.

He stated, “I have grown to appreciate it because it’s unique. It’s not every day an athlete is nicknamed after a cartoon character!”

Aguero has a tattoo on the inside of his right arm inscribed in Tengwar—a form of writing invented by J. R. R. Tolkien in The Lord of the Rings—that transliterates roughly to ‘Kun Aguero’ in the Latin script.

He also has a tattoo on his left arm of his son’s name and date of birth.

Aguero shares a close friendship with Lionel Messi, his regular roommate during outings for the national team since 2005.

He described Messi as being “like a brother” in his 2014 autobiography, Born to Rise. It also contains a foreword written by Messi.

Sponsorship and Endorsements

Just like other footballers, Aguero has also cashed in on endorsements. He is the face of long-time boot sponsor Puma. In 2011, he signed a $6.2 million three-year boot deal with Puma.

The 31-year-old wears Puma ONE 20.1 football boots in 2019/20.

Aguero completed a record-breaking 12th hat-trick in January 2020, also becoming the highest overseas goalscorer in Premier League history. To honour the achievement, Puma presented the Argentinian with a pair of special edition Puma ONE.
