Sergio Aguero Criticised For Putting Hand On Assistant Referee Sian Massey-Ellis

Sergio Aguero Criticised For Putting Hand On Assistant Referee Sian Massey-Ellis

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has come in for criticism after putting his hand on assistant referee Sian Massey-Ellis this evening.

The Argentine was playing his first game for over three months after undergoing knee surgery and was unhappy with Massey-Ellis' decision to award Arsenal a throw-in in the first half.

After protesting as she held her flag up, Aguero grabbed the official's shoulder and she attempted to push his arm away. Referee Chris Kavanagh was not made aware of the incident and no action was taken.

However, many feel as though City's record scorer should have been punished given a number of past incidents where players have put hands on an official resulted in bookings and even red cards in some cases.

It was announced back in 2016 that players would be penalised for touching an official yet Aguero escaped punishment at the Etihad.

The 32-year-old lasted 65 minutes in his comeback before he was replaced by Ilkay Gundogan. City recorded their second league win of the season thanks to Raheem Sterling's first-half strike.
