Why Sergio Aguero ‘punched’ a Wigan fan after Man City’s FA Cup defeat – new footage

Wigan 1 – Manchester City 0

Prior to kick off, Wigan were more than 20/1 with most bookmakers to beat Manchester City.

Incredibly, the League One side ended Man City’s hopes of winning the quadruple with a stunning win in the FA Cup fifth round.

Wigan will now host Southampton in the quarterfinals.

The only goal of the game came 12 minutes from time. Will Grigg scored a brilliant solo effort to send the Wigan fans wild.

When the final whistle blew on proceedings, Wigan fans rushed onto the pitch to celebrate.

However those celebrations turned nasty as Sergio Aguero ‘threw a punch’ at a Wigan supporter who had got in his face.

Why Sergio Aguero ‘punched’ a Wigan fan

New eye-witness footage has been posted on social media revealing just what set off Aguero with the Wigan fan.

What seems clear is that the fan, who was wearing a green coat, made it his mission to get in Aguero’s face to taunt the Argentine striker.

After obviously overstepping his boundary, Aguero reacted with a ‘punch’ or shove to the face which seemed intent of just getting the fan out of his private space.

It’s also worth noting that Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya, who was at the match, told Spanish TV show ChiringuitoTV: “A fan spat at Aguero and Kun feared he might have an object to cause him harm.”

There are now calls for Aguero to be banned.

However, Wigan Athletic may also be in big trouble for the behaviour of their supporters.

We await the updates from the FA to see what punishments will be dished out.
