Man City fans react to investigation of Sergio Aguero’s altercation with Wigan fans

Man City fans have rushed to the defence of Sergio Aguero after the forward clashed with Wigan fans who invaded the pitch following their club’s shock 1-0 defeat to the League One side in the FA Cup fifth round last night.

Will Grigg’s 79th minute strike wasn’t the only talking point in the game, with tensions boiling over in the tunnel at halftime between the two managers and an unsavoury pitch invasion at the end by Wigan supporters.

In the fracas after the full-time whistle, Wigan fans goaded the visiting supporters in front of the away stand, objects were thrown between the two sets of fans and City fans were seen tearing up the advertising hoardings which lined the pitch.

Most shocking of all, though, was the Argentine striker’s altercation with a Wigan fan who harassed Aguero as he tried to make his way off the pitch. Aguero responded by chasing the fan before being held back by a teammate, and even appeared to swing a punch.

The FA are now considering starting an investigation into the ugly events at the DW Stadium, and are not ruling out possible punishment for the Man City player.

City fans were not having any of it, though…
