Pep Guardiola has defended Sergio Aguero after the striker was criticized for touching lineswoman Sian Massey-Ellis during Saturday’s win over Arsenal.
Aguero found himself at the centre of controversy just before half-time at the Etihad Stadium after he took exception to Massey-Ellis signalling a throw-in for Arsenal, when the striker believed it should have been City’s ball.
The striker confronted Massey-Ellis and grabbed her by the shoulder near her neck, before his arm brushed across her back. Massey-Ellis reacted by swatting Aguero’s arm away from her.
The incident caused plenty of strong reactions, with many believing the veteran striker had touched Massey-Ellis in an inappropriate fashion.
