The Manchester City striker got angry with the assistant from the side, said several things to her and grabbed her by the shoulder. He got off the yellow, but could be sanctioned “ex officio”.
In the match on matchday 5 of the Premier League between Manchester City and Arsenal, Argentine striker Sergio Kun Agüero took all the spotlights from the Etihad Stadium after a gesture with the linesman that unleashed a scandal and ignited the controversy in the social networks.
The linesman marked the side for Arsenal and there Kun exploded against the assistant: he faced her, said several things and ended up taking her by the shoulder inexplicably. The line did not like the attitude and immediately took his hand off her.
The situation was there, simply, and Agüero got rid of the yellow card… It was in the 42nd minute, when Kun Agüero protested the linesman’s decision after conceding a throw-in to Arsenal that did not like Manchester City’s ’10’. However, the controversy came later. The forward touched the shoulder of the linesman to discuss the play and on social networks they have reacted to condemn that controversial gesture. The judge did not like the gesture at all and took her hand off him quickly.
In his return to the title, Kun played 65 minutes in Pep Guardiola’s team against the Gunners (he was replaced by Gündogan). And went the Argentine who took command in the attack that ended with Sterling 1-0.
Now it will be necessary to see if before the scandal unleashed more than anything in the social networks, the Federation (FA) takes action on the matter and opens a file to the forward of the “Citizens”, something that can make you lose some Premier League games. Is there a penalty for Kun? It will be known in the week …
