Aguero Sorry For Luiz Stamp

Sergio Aguero has made a public apology to David Luiz for the two-footed lunge he made on the Brazilian defender last weekend.

The incident took place during Manchester City’s 2-1 win over Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, and Aguero is lucky to have avoided post-match censure for what was clearly a sending-off offence.

After the match Luiz said he would have apologised if he had been the tackler, and Aguero has subsequently taken his fellow South American’s words to heart.

"I've contacted @DavidLuiz_4 and apologized for what happened during the match,” Aguero tweeted.

“It was an impulse reaction that shouldn't have happened.”

In return, Luiz has accepted Aguero’s apology, suggesting it proves the quality of the City striker’s character.

"Thank you @aguerosergiokun for a demonstration of character. We get to know great man and athletes this way," Luiz tweeted.

The Brazilian and Argentine's contest at Wembley had been feisty, in keeping with the rivalry between those two great footballing neighbours.

But their Twitter exchange proves that sometimes footballers can leave their rivalries on the field.
