Who has seen the live images will understand the immense embarrassment that gripped us on Saturday watching the match between Manchester City and Arsenal (Citizens' 1-0 victory).
Disagree with the referee after she granted the dismissal to the Gunners, Kun Agüero let him know verbally before, and that's where the shoe pinch, to put his hand on his neck .
The linesman quickly pushed the Argentine back and he escaped a sanction even though Premier League regulations stipulate that it is forbidden to touch an official on a pitch.
Who does Aguero think he is?

Guardiola defends his player
Former Arsenal player Ian Wright saw there the mark of an attitude "useless and condescending" while Emmanuel Petit, consultant for RMC Sport, points to the sexist side of Agüero's gesture: "If that had been a man, he wouldn't have done it.
I am convinced of it ”.
Questioned at the end of the meeting, Pep Guardiola refuses to see his player accused of any inappropriate gesture: “Stop guys, Sergio is the nicest person I have met in my life.
Look for problems in other situations, but not here ”.
Funny posture on the part of the Catalan technician because the Kun could well be the most adorable man in the world, his gesture is nonetheless very limited.
