Twitter goes bezerk as Guardiola benches Aguero

Sergio Aguero has been left out of Manchester City’s game against Barcelona.

Yes, you read that right. Imagine if Manuel Pellegrini had done this, the sheer uproar would make Manchester tremble.

Instead, this will be seen as a careful ploy, won’t it?

Maybe it is a stroke of genius and Kevin de Bruyne can help give City extra numbers in central midfield. Maybe Aguero is struggling for fitness after he picked up yet another knock on international duty.

Whatever the outcome, this decision from Guardiola will be seen as a watershed moment. Even a manager of his calibre will think twice or thrice about leaving out a player as crucial and clinical and Sergio Aguero.

Naturally, a lot of people are pretty peeved at this call from Pep.

Yep, we don’t really ‘get’ it either. It could all work out rosy, though!

This might just be the most reasonable explanation we have seen so far.

You don’t want to upset John Cross, Pep.

Oh, come on mate. Don’t spoil the ludicrous fun and overreaction.

People don’t really know whether to be angry or go weak at the knees on this one, understandably so. One thing Guardiola has done, though, is give everyone another reason to blame him if this ends in a City defeat.

Maybe that’s his plan?
