Looking for an explanation as to why Aguero’s socks were different to his teammates, the good people at Footy Headlines have triggered an injury concern for the South American star:
It was by not the first time that Sergio Agüero stood out with his socks style – he has been using socks upside down in January 2019.
The reason for Aguero for cutting off his socks is very likely that it gives him more freedom while also reducing calf pressure.
Man City fans will be please Aguero now gets to rest during the international break.
