Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero has apologized to the coaching crew, fans and players and accepted full responsibility for the penalty he missed against Chelsea over the weekend.
Sergio Aguero had the opportunity to double Manchester City’s lead after Billy Gilmour brought down Gabriel Jesus in the box. A win would have handed City the Premier League title with three games to spare. Aguero attempted a Panenka penalty which Chelsea’s goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy caught with one hand and with ease.
He took to Twitter to render an apology: “I would like to apologize to my teammates, staff and supporters for missing the penalty. It was a bad decision and I take full responsibility.” Chelsea went on to win the match 2-1 and football enthusiasts believe the Blues will head into the Champions League final with extra confidence after defeating Guardiola’s side in their last two meetings within a month. The Champions League final was originally billed for May 29th at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium, Istanbul, but there are ongoing talks to move it to London after the UK government urged fans not to travel for the fixture and placed Turkey on its ‘red’ list of at-risk countries.
