The world is calling for a ban on Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero after he elbowed West Ham’s Winston Reid during their 3-1 win at the Etihad Stadium today. The ugly incident happened at the 76th minute of the game after the pair contended for a long clearance from goalkeeper Adrian. During the course, Kun Aguero swung his elbow against his opponent leaving the latter to clutch his neck in pain and eventually leave the game.
More bewildering to fans is that the red card offence was overlooked and he was allowed to continue the game. Aguero could be charged with violent conduct by the Football Association, could face 3-match ban and miss Manchester derby.
Asked to comment on the incident, Pep Guardiola, Manchester City coach said,”I did not see anything. I will see what you are talking about on TV and after that, we are going to see.”
