The Argentine forward Sergio Agüero was the protagonist this Saturday in England and not only for his return to the field after four months in the Manchester City game against Arsenal, but also for causing controversy, due to physical contact with linesman Sian Massey-Ellis.
It was the 41st minute of the commitment at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester and the trans-Andean claimed a possible side for her squad very close to the referee. This dismissed the complaints of “Kun”, who touched the shoulder of the professional at that time.
In the Itelevision image clearly perceived that Massey-Ellis did not feel comfortable with the contact and bluntly She took her hand off the ram from her shoulder and tried to stay focused on the game.
This earned him criticism of the player on social networks by netizens and even MP Rosena Allin-Khan, calling the action “unacceptable”. Others questioned that he had not been expelled.
City won this match 1-0 and added their second victory in the Premier League.

Sooooo…Aguero definitely should have been sent off for grabbing the official right…it was gross to watch.

Fucking appalled when I saw this this AM. @premierleague made a clear cut rule in 2016 that touching a ref warrants a yellow or red card. And Aguero not only didn’t get a card but was defended by the team manager post-game. https://t.co/3xUOnpyFXW

If what Aguero did to the lady in an ordinary office is unacceptable then why it is “okay” on a football pitch?
