FA Hands Sergio Aguero Three Match Ban

Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero has been handed a three-match ban by the FA following a hearing. Aguero was charged with violent conduct after he appeared to have elbowed a West Ham player during their premier league encounter on August 28.

A statement from the FA said; “Sergio Aguero will serve a three-match suspension with immediate effect after an FA charge of violent conduct against him was found proven.

“The Manchester City forward was involved in a 76th minute incident with West Ham United’s Winston Reid on Sunday [28 August 2016], which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.

“The club denied the charge and submitted further that if it was to be found proven, the standard punishment  would be clearly excessive.

“On finding the charge proven at a hearing today [Friday 2 September 2016], an Independent Regulatory Commission went on to reject the club’s further claim to decrease the three-match ban.”

Aguero will now miss the Manchester Derby set for September 10.
