Former Manchester City star, Sergio Aguero is under investigations by Argentina authorities for alleged misconduct.
After calling time on his career two years ago, Sergio Aguero has stayed glued to the game.
Sergio Aguero’s retirement was premature. The Premier League legend was forced to quit the game due to cardiac arrhythmia while he was about to open a new chapter in his career at Barcelona in the Laliga.
After retirement, his passion for the game has lived on. Sergio Aguero was spotted going toe-to-toe with Argentina 2022 World Cup squad until they won the tournament.
He joined the team’s crazy dressing room celebrations after the victory, singing aloud and dancing with the players.
Now, based in his country home, Argentina, Sergio Aguero is a die-hard supporter and fan of his former club, Independiente, where he grew and nurtured his career before the big move to Europe.
Apart from keeping tabs on the game he loves so much, Aguero is also a passionate fan that is not afraid to join banters in defense of his club or team.
Aguero was caught in a tunnel brawl with Burnley loanee to Manchester United, Wout Weghorst, during the 2022 World Cup quarterfinal clash between Argentina and Netherlands.
Argentina players complained of the poor officiating during the game with Sergio Aguero taking sides with his team and nearly challenging Wout Weghorst to a brawl in the tunnel after the game.
The 34-year-old was not caught off guard while watching his former club Independiente draw with Racing Club in Argentina elite division last month.
It was a highly controversial game with the referee, Yael Falcon Perez, making some outrageous decisions, including awarding a penalty to Racing Club against Sergio Aguero’s side Independiente.
The match ended in a 1-1 draw but Aguero, who was creating contents of the game for his fans on his Twitch account, did not spare the hints as he tore into the referee for a bizarre and lopsided officiating.
The match saw Sergio Aguero lost his cool, ranting furiously on Perez for his decision in the game including the penalty decision.
Speaking live on Twitch, Aguero said;
“How can he, the referee, what the f**k is his name… Yael Falcon Perez.
“Listen to me, Yael Falcon, that name is a disaster. You can say [the penalty], ‘it starts outside and ends up inside’.
“But he goes on to say ‘where the first contact is made is where the foul is called’.
“The truth is that he’s ready to kick the s**t out of this fathead.”
Aguero’s comment has reportedly been taken up by Argentinian authorities, according to a report by AS.
The report says an Argentinian government agency charged with the role of mitigating all forms of violence in sports, Agency for the Prevention of Violence in Sports, have decided to take up Aguero’s comments on Perez.
A case has now been opened by the agency and Sergio Aguero is now under investigations for the Twitch outburst.
The Agency flagged Aguero’s comment as violent and contravening safety standards in sports.
They also disclosed the match referee, Perez, have received death threats following Aguero’s comment.
As at the time of filing this report, Sergio Aguero was yet to respond to the allegations.
Reports from Argentina media outlets says Sergio Aguero could face a hefty fine or ban from live games if found guilty.
