- Manchester City striker placed hand at top of official’s shoulder
- 32-year-old was criticised on Match of the Day over incident
Sergio Agüero will not face any retrospective action for placing a hand on the left shoulder of assistant referee Sian Massey-Ellis during Manchester City’s win over Arsenal as it is not deemed by the PGMOL, the governing body for officials, to have been an aggressive or threatening action.
The incident occurred in the 42nd minute of the first half at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, with Agüero apparently unhappy at Massey-Ellis for not awarding City a throw-in, instead doing so for Arsenal.
