Aguero’s movement toward aiding referee sparks communication


During the fifth round of the Premier League match between Manchester City and Arsenal, Argentine striker Con Aguero was in the spotlight at the Etihad Stadium after contact with the referee’s assistant sparked controversy on social media.
In the 42nd minute, Aguero protested against the assistant referee’s decision, and later, the Argentine striker touched her shoulder and she quickly responded to the gesture and raised her hand quickly.
In a press conference, Man City coach Pep Guardiola defended Aguero and insisted that the move was not at all aggressive towards the assistant referee, while former Arsenal player and commentator Ian Wright described Aguero’s move as “unnecessary” and “condescending”.
