Sergio Aguero Attempts One Of The Worst Panenka's Ever

Sergio Aguero managed to take one of the worst penalties in Premier League history, as he chipped his panenka attempt straight into Edouard Mendy's arms.

Aguero has done pretty much everything there is to do in his 10 years in England, and looks set to leave the country as a five time Premier League champion at the end of this season, and continued to make history on Saturday.

After first messing up a great chance to break the deadlock in City's game vs Chelsea, which ended up being an accidental assist for Raheem Sterling, the former Atletico Madrid striker took one of the worst penalties ever,

The club's all time top scorer had the chance in injury time to make it 2-0 from the spot but chose to Panenka his attempt past Mendy.

Aguero hit it with no pace or power and Mendy, who initially went to make a dive, just got to his feet and casually plucked the ball out of the air one handed, making Aguero's attempt one of the worst in history.

The 32-year-old hasn't played much this season, due to injury, Covid and form, but got the nod to start with Pep Guardiola potentially holding back his full hand before they face Chelsea in the Champions League final later this month.

Guardiola set his team up in essentially a 3-3-4, with Aguero, Sterling, Ferland Torres and Gabriel Jesus all starting.

Chelsea also made several changes from their Champions League semi final, against Real Madrid on Wednesday, with Billy Gilmour getting a rare start under Thomas Tuchel.

Sterling was perhaps lucky not to be sent off in a relatively quiet opening 44 minutes of the first half, that suddenly came to life.

Andreas Christensen attempted to get to the ball on the stretch but missed it under pressure from Jesus on the edge of the box.

The Brazilian squared it for Aguero who seemed to have an easy chance at goal but his first choice took it away from him, Sterling ran in to grab the opening goal.

Aguero didn't look too happy with his teammate but a minute later had a chance to make it 2-0 after Gilmour brought down Jesus in the box.

Instead of smashing the ball home to equal Wayne Rooney's record of 183 goals scored for one Premier League club, the Argentina forward went for a Panenka, which failed in the most spectacular way possible.
