Aguero says sorry to Luiz

17 April 2013, 14:23

London - Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has apologised to David Luiz for his ugly two-footed foul on the Chelsea defender in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium.

Aguero launched into Luiz with his studs showing and caught the Brazilian high on the back of his left leg towards the end of the game, which City won 2-1.

However, he escaped retrospective punishment from the Football Association because match referee Chris Foy saw the incident at the time and awarded a free-kick in Chelsea's favour.

Aguero nonetheless decided to apologise for his actions, writing on Twitter: "I've contacted @DavidLuiz_4 and apologised for what happened during the match. It was an impulse reaction that shouldn't have happened."

Luiz, who had called on Aguero to say sorry after the game, said he accepted the Argentine's apology.

"Thank you @aguerosergiokun for a demonstration of character. We get to know great man and athletes this way," he wrote on Twitter.

Both men are expected to be in action later on Wednesday, with Chelsea visiting west London rivals Fulham in the Premier League and City hosting Wigan Athletic in a dress rehearsal for the FA Cup final.
