Sergio Aguero: Will Man City ace get banned for Wigan clash? How many games will he miss?

SERGIO AGUERO’s altercation with a fan after Manchester City’s defeat to Wigan could see him sitting in the stands for a while – but how many games will he miss?

A furious Aguero was seen in an altercation with a Wigan fan after the final whistle of last night’s FA Cup clash.

Manchester City were beaten 1-0 by League One Wigan thanks to Will Grigg’s breakaway goal.

City lost Fabian Delph to a straight red card on the stroke of half time, which led to ugly seasons in the tunnel at the break.

Pep Guardiola was raging and was seen gesticulating at referee Bobby Madley and opposition boss Paul Cook.

City dominated the match despite being reduced to 10 men but were unable to find the breakthrough before Grigg shocked the league leaders in the 79th minute.

But the red card in the first half gave the game and edge and explosive scenes followed the final whistle.

Augero was approached by a fan and was seen hitting out in retaliation and then tried to chase him down but was held back by teammates.

Will Sergio Aguero get a ban?

Some have called for Aguero to be banned for the rest of the season, while others have called on authorities to hit him with a 10-match ban.

Violent conduct carries a three-match ban although with Aguero not being issued a red card for the incident the FA are likely to investigate and decide what punishment is necessary.

City are expected to ask questions of Wigan and why fans were allowed onto the pitch after the match.

“Not right, not correct,” Guardiola said of the fan invasion.

“I haven’t seen these incidents and would rather not comment. With all due respect, player safety is paramount.”

David Sharpe, Wigan’s chairman, condemned the pitch invasion and the scuffles.

“It is not nice to see, football is emotional, it is what it does to fans. But I don't like to see this at the end of the game,” he said.

“It is a massive result, but we have to stay classy in football, I don't like what I am seeing here.”

Augero had to be led away from the pitch by coach Mikel Arteta and City will be sweating on any punishment for their star striker with some big fixtures on the horizon.

What games could Aguero miss?

Well that depends on what punishment is issued but a look at the fixture list will worry City fans.
