FOOTBALL star Sergio Aguero has another big goal in his sights — winning a £8million poker tournament in Las Vegas.
The former Man City striker, 35, is among more than 3,000 playing in the two-week World Series of Poker Main Event.
Novice Aguero has won less than £5,000 in his fledgling poker career.
But the Argentine bagged a respectable 85,000 chips after day one, with Briton Christopher Brammer leading with 386,100.
Insiders said there was hope for Aguero, famed for his dramatic stoppage-time goal for City to win the Prem in 2012.
A source said: “Even the best players make mistakes or get bad cards.
“Sergio has got to stay in for as long as he can — then who knows.”
Aguero helped City win five Premier League titles, an FA Cup, and six League Cups.
After leaving City in 2021, Aguero joined Barcelona.
He played only four games for the Spanish giants scoring just one goal before being diagnosed with a heart condition and announcing his retirement.
