Folks on Twitter took issues with a very weird moment between Sergio Aguero and lineswoman during Manchester City’s Premier League game against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.
The Argentine striker was caught on cam putting his hands on the referee’ assistant after a decision which went against Manchester City.
It is really hard to imagine just exactly what went through Sergio Aguero’s head here?
Handling an official is a usually a yellow card offence, but handling a female official in such a patronising manner is downright pathetic.
Check out the incident and the reaction below –
What’s Aguero at touching the line judge like that!! pic.twitter.com/yDAmgMKNiE— liam Butterscotch (@liamjb23) October 17, 2020
Aguero! What is he doing with Sian Massey? Would never ever do that if it was a male linesman. Very strange— Jimmy McCann (@JamesMcCann74) October 17, 2020
Surely Aguero can’t get away with touching a lineswoman like that?!— DILLINGER 👹 (@DillanMUFC) October 17, 2020
What is this from Aguero? Very strange thing to do, isn’t it? pic.twitter.com/szU9xAWuc7— EK (@EKRegista) October 17, 2020
#mancityvsarsenal Aguero grabbing a ref because she’s female? Don’t know that I have ever seen a player grab a ref.— chuckclarkared (@chuckclarkared) October 17, 2020
As a woman I did not find this to be a grab or aggressive. I think the woman is equipted to handle this herself. Such an outrage just weakens equality of women if that had been a man no one would say anything. I think English culture of being reserved blew this out of proportion. She can file a complaint or ask for a yellow card at that time.
Dont want to over react but this is not good from any view point. Should at least be officially reprimanded.
That, in this polically correct age, is harassment. Needs to be dealt with by the police in Hate Crime Week. I notice that “what’s happen to my country” Lineker only managed to give it 10 seconds. Maybe the line judge was not black.
Unbelievable, I was watching #MOTD and saw Sergio Aguero pit his arm on a football referee because she didn’t give his Team a free kick.
Hope he apologised for his behaviour and I hope he gets fined too. I was so shocked, as its not what I expect ted to see from a so called professional football player in the 22nd Century.
Of course it’s idiots like you who are offended for her. Last I checked it’s the 21st century you fucking retard
Sent strong e-mail to Man City.
Absolutely Unacceptable to touch lines person. That was harassment
Not event mentioned be broadcast.
Black lives matter. So does sexual harassment. I expect (demand ) something be done.
I also complained to Man City, the FA and Kick It Out
