Sergio Aguero in line for stunning £86,000 win after lumping on Cameron Smith to win US Open – but gets off to bad start | The Sun

FORMER football superstar Sergio Aguero is praying Cameron Smith comes good at the US Open – after lumping a £4,000 bet on the Australian winning the golf major this week.

Ex-Manchester City and Barcelona striker Aguero believes Smith can come out on top over Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Co over the four days at Brookline.

The Argentina ace, who was forced to retire from football for health reasons last year, has become a huge golf fan over the past few years.

And the 34-year-old has struck up a friendship with Smith after sharing swing tips with the world number-six over video messaging.

That has led Aguero to stake £4,000 with crypto casino and sports betting site on his buddy storming to victory to seal the first golf Major triumph of his career.

Aguero said: "I am supporting Cameron Smith for the US Open on Stake.

"I sent him some videos of my swings and he's motivated."

Smith is one of the most fancied stars in action this week as the best in world golf battle it out for US Open glory – including the rebel players who played in the LIV Invitational last week.

And if the 28-year-old from Brisbane wins on Sunday it will see Aguero collect a whopping £86,000 in winnings.

Aguero often takes to the course himself and regularly teams up with former City and Manchester United star Carlos Tevez for a round.
