Aguero apologizes to Luiz for nasty tackle

Share This Story



Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has apologized to David Luiz for his ugly two-footed stamp on the back of the Chelsea defender's thighs during Sunday's FA Cup semifinal at Wembley Stadium.

Aguero says in a Twitter post that he has contacted Luiz to say sorry for the 85th-minute tackle in City's 2-1 win, adding that it was an ''impulse reaction that shouldn't have happened.''

Luiz used Twitter to thank the Argentina international for a ''demonstration of character. We get to know great man and athletes this way.''

Aguero escaped any retrospective punishment - a likely three-match ban - for the tackle because referee Chris Foy confirmed he saw at least part of the incident and acted on it during the match.
