Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has escaped FA charges for hitting a Wigan Athletic fan following their 1-0 FA Cup defeat at the DW Stadium on Monday.

FA CUP: Aguero clashes with a fan after Wigan defeat 

Pep- Guardiola side lacked the cutting edge against the Latics and in the 79th minute Wills Griggs broke the deadlock and that proved to be the only goal of the game as he ended City’s hope of quadruple.

Wigan fans invaded the pitch after the final whistle and in the process, Aguero was hit by a Wigan fan and as they allege that the man spat at the striker and said ‘suck my d***’.

The Argentine striker was held back by members of the City coaching crew and some of his teammates in the ugly scene while City supporters threw bottles at police officers who were attempting to contain the situation.

FA has looked into the matter and they have as well concluded that the Argentine forward has no case to answer and will be available for the EFL Cup finals against Arsenal on Sunday.
