Manchester City star striker Sergio Aguero won’t be punished retrospectively by the FA for vicious challenge on West Ham’s Mark Noble…
Sergio Aguero appears to have got away with one this weekend after finding out he won’t be retrospectively punished for his stamp on Mark Noble during Manchester City’s shock loss against West Ham, reports ESPN.
West Ham managed a shock win over Premier League champions Manchester City this weekend, but following a nasty stamp by Aguero on Noble it was suspected that the Argentine forward would be given a three match ban.
The FA have confirmed that no further action will be taken on the matter, and that the prolific hit-man will be eligible for City’s derby clash with Manchester United this weekend.
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce was not impressed with the tackle at all, and will no doubt be equally unimpressed with the FA for not following up on the incident.
“Mark was complaining about it at half-time. It was a dangerous tackle and the referee was right in front of it,” he said.
With five goals in his last six games against their Manchester rivals, Aguero would have been a huge miss for the Citizens.
Louis van Gaal is also likely to be wary of the striker’s form this season, but with United’s defence looking the way it is at the moment is there anything they can do to stop him?
