New Slo-mo Footage Of Sergio Aguero's Altercation With Wigan Fan Emerges

If you tuned into last night's post-match coverage of the FA Cup fifth round tie between Wigan and Manchester City, then you'll have witnessed Sergio Aguero clashing with a fan after the final whistle.

Argentinian journalist Jose Alvarez Haya claimed Aguero was spat at by one of the Wigan fans who invaded the pitch at full time.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola refused to blame his players after the runaway Premier league leaders, reduced to 10 men at half-time, were knocked out of the FA Cup by third tier Wigan Athletic.

The clubs have until 6pm on Friday February 23 to respond.

Will Grigg scored the victor as League One Wigan beat City 1-0 and ended their hopes of winning a Quadruple of the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League.

Media reports said City's Argentine striker Sergio Aguero was also goaded by a Wigan fan and had to be escorted to safety. Some Latics fans ran to taunt the City fans, who responded by ripping off parts of the advertising hoardings and throwing them onto the pitch.

Aguero and City are yet to decide whether to take the matter further but will discuss with lawyers whether they think a common assault has occurred.

Referee Anthony Taylor had a yellow card in his hand initially, with the dismissal serving to rile Delph's team-mates and provoke furious reaction from Pep Guardiola on the touchline.

The forward's argument is that he was simply defending himself against the fan's aggression, although he was also clearly angry and reacted to something, which he said was the spitting.

Though City have not commented, it is understood they feel the level of stewarding was inadequate and are concerned the safety of players was endangered.

"There's no problems", said Wigan's Cook of his half-time exchange with Guardiola.

The altercation came amid a pitch invasion by Wigan Athletic supporters after the club pulled off a shocking upset in a fifth-round FA Cup tie between the clubs.

Sources within the FA believe they will be in a position to decide whether to bring charges or not on Wednesday, once all footage has been studied and statements have been taken.

Police, who have now launched an investigation, acted to restore order but two arrests were made on suspicion of affray following an incident outside the ground.
