Dispute with referee assistant: ManCity-Star outraged with controversial touch – Guardiola comments

Premier League - Man. City vs Arsenal

Manchester City is one of the winners of the 5th game day of the Premier League. The fact that after the final whistle. However, there was almost only talk of a less sporting scene stinks coach Pep Guardiola.

Manchester/Munich – The Merseyside Derby outshone everything in the Premier League this weekend. Although Everton FC and the reigning champions Liverpool FC 2-2 parted without a winner. The emotional match provided plenty to talk. One of the beneficiaries of the point split was Manchester City. Who beat Arsenal 1-0 in the top game of the 5th round. At the same time, Chelsea FC did not win despite two goals from Timo Werner and a goal from Kai Havertz.

Raheem Sterling scored the goal of the day in the duel between the two “Big Six” clubs after just 23 minutes. But much more is being debated in England in the aftermath about a scene from the 42nd minute of play. Location of the crime: Outside line. Main actors: Sergio “Kun” Agüero and Sian Massey-Ellis.

Aguero and the assistant referee: Argentinean causes a throw-in and gets upset

The latter, assistant referee, decided in favour of the “Gunners” after a ball flew out near the corner flag, which the Argentinean in the service of ManCity did not quite like. Arsenal’s Gabriel had cleverly shot the rushing attacker to give his team the standard.

Nevertheless, Agüero argued briefly, pointing Massey-Ellis to their alleged mistake and pointing to the line. But the assistant referee did not want to engage in what was probably a hopeless discussion anyway and left the 32-year-old standing.

Agüero and the assistant referee: Suddenly the hand lands on the shoulder

Then Agüero followed her and briefly put his arm on Massey-Ellis’ shoulder to draw her attention again. And poof, the soccer motherland had its excitement scene, especially since the assistant referee found the gesture anything but gentleman like and brusquely wiped her hand away.

Since then, arguments from both camps have exchanged on Twitter. Some observers wanted to interpret a sexist scene in this way. Others recognize the familiar emotions during a close game. However, for decades any intentional touching of the impartial, as well as his assistants, was prevented.

Agüero and the assistant referee: Guardiola reacts indignantly when asked

And what do the experts say about the situation? Agüero should have “known better”, stressed his former teammate Micah Richards at Sky Sports. City trainer Pep Guardiola, on the other hand, was surprisingly not in the mood for this meaningless action. “Come on guys, Sergio is the nicest person I have ever met in my life,” the Catalan immediately jumped to his player’s side at the press conference after the game: “Look for other problems in other situations, not this one.

Aguero himself was happy not only about the three points but also about an otherwise successful comeback after a four-month break due to a knee injury. “Great to be back,” twittered Diego Maradona’s former son-in-law. On the other hand, he didn’t want to say a word about the “scene of the game”.
