Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is believed to have thrown a punch at a opposition supporter after his side’s 1-0 defeat to a League One club in the FA Cup fifth round on Monday night.
Soon after the final whistle, the home side’s fans stormed the pitch at the DW Stadium and it was at this moment when the Argentine was confronted by an overjoyed supporter, as seen on the television cameras.
The exchange between the player and the fan sparked a furious reaction from the 29-year-old Argentine, who seemingly threw a punch in frustration, before being restrained by his teammates, opposition players and some of the backroom staff.
Will Grigg’s 79th-minute goal secured the win for Wigan over the Premier League leaders, who had Fabian Delph sent off for a tackle on Max Power in the first half.

It has been said that the City striker could be in serious trouble if the English Football Association decides there is enough evidence against him, which could see him sit out a number of games in the coming weeks.
