Yesterday, Wigan would do the unthinkable by beating Manchester City 1-0 to advance in the FA Cup. And while world class strikerA�Sergio AgA?ero isn’t happy about it, he’s much more upset about other events that reportedly transpired.
According to The Guardian’s Jamie Jackson:
“Sergio AgA?ero believes he was told to suck my dick’ and was spat at in his ear by the Wigan supporter who confronted him at the DW Stadium on Monday, with the striker considering pressing charges for common assault.”
So, what actions canA�AgA?ero realistically take? Well…
“AgA?ero met withA�Manchester CityA�officials, including those from the legal department, on Tuesday to discuss his options and he may yet make his disquiet official by lodging a complaint with the police.”
But how did this come about in the first place?
“The striker made contact with the fan following a pitch invasion which left him and his City team-mates vulnerable to attack. Having studied footage of the invasion the Football Association have reminded AgA?ero of his responsibilities but have decided against charging him.”
With the loss, City’s chances at the quadruple are no more. But that’s probably okay for Pep Guardiola and his side. While it’s frustrating to lose to Wigan after controlling the match how they did, bigger fixtures remain. They appear to be easing into the quarterfinals of the Champions League. But on the other hand, it promises to get much tougher after Basel.
As forA�AgA?ero, he’s in the middle of another fine season. The 29-year-old Argentinian has 21 goals and five assists across 22 Premier League appearances. He has an additional four goals and one assist in six Champions League matches. And he has four more goals across six other domestic cup matches.
As for the Wigan supporter who allegedly spit at hima��why? Your favorite side just beat one of the best clubs in the world; enjoy it! Don’t spit atA�Sergio AgA?ero. Hell, don’t spit atA�anyone.
Up next, City take on Arsenal in the Carabao Cup final. Four days after that, they visit them for a league match. CanA�AgA?ero inch closer to another Golden Boot? There’s no reason to doubt him at this point.
