Sergio Aguero went unpunished on his return to the Premier League on Saturday night after grabbing assistant referee Sian Massey-Ellis on the shoulder in a 1-0 win over Arsenal.
The Manchester City striker argued a throw-in decision for Arsenal when he put his hand on her shoulder.
Pep Guardiola defended Aguero, insisting that the striker’s action was clearly not aggressive. The city boss said: “Come on, Sergio is the nicest person I have met in my life. Look for problems in other situations, not this one. ‚

Aguero may have been lucky enough to escape with impunity after grabbing her shoulder
But Aguero was certainly taking a risk. Former Premier League referee Chris Foy said: “The keywords are” aggressive “and” confrontational “. The law states, “It is not uncommon for players to come into contact with officials.
“As long as this is done politely and not aggressively or confrontationally, a referee does not have to take any action.”
Massey-Ellis was the subject of sexist throats that cost presenters Andy Gray and Richard Keys their jobs at Sky Sports in 2011.
Raheem Sterling believes City’s performance benefited from Aguero’s return.
Guardiola jumped to Aguero’s defense, claiming the Argentine was the “nicest person” he had ever met
The English winger had to play the wrong nine this season, with Aguero and Gabriel Jesus missing, but the Argentine’s first move since his knee injury in June put City in better form.
“It was very good again to have a striker to bond with,” said Sterling, who missed England’s most recent internationals to rest over a thigh complaint.
‘Sometimes in the first half, Sergio and I got in the pockets well. It was an important result for us. We lost points early on and had to boost our season. ‚
The win was a relief for Guardiola, who saw his side beaten 5-2 in Leicester’s last home game.
“The desire to win was impressive against a team like Arsenal that has everything it takes to win the league,” he said.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was upset. VAR wasn’t looking at Kyle Walker’s high heels as he cleared a corner. “I asked the referee to look again,” he said. “I don’t think they checked and I’m disappointed with it.”

Sky Sports expert Micah Richards said the incident didn’t look good on his former teammate
In Sky Sport’s post-game coverage, Aguero’s former teammate Micah Richards said the incident didn’t look good.
He said, “He didn’t really have to do it. You have to respect the officials. I think she’s handling the situation really well.
‘He’ll know better. I don’t think we need to think about it, but he shouldn’t touch the officers, it doesn’t look good. ‚
