Sergio Aguero’s knee-high tackle on David Luiz marred an entertaining game at the Etihad on Saturday.
This wasn’t the first time Aguero had tackled Luiz poorly. Four seasons ago, in a 2012-13 FA Cup match, Aguero received no punishment for a two-footed stomp on Luiz’s backside.
When asked after the game about Aguero’s knee-high challenge in the closing minutes of Chelsea’s 3-1 victory over Manchester City, Luiz said: “Let’s not talk about this, sometimes the other players are frustrated with the result.
“Instead, I want to give this victory to the people in Brazil. It was a difficult week, I had friends there.”
David Luiz showed he has class. Nice one, Luiz.
