Argentine striker Sergio Kun Aguero has apologised to the fans of Manchester City after missing a crucial penalty in their league match against Chelsea football club.
The player had the chance to double his side’s lead on the 45th minute when his team was awarded a penalty after an infringement in the Chelsea’s penalty box.
The Barcelona bound player stepped up to take the kick and decided to go for a cheeky Panenka kick.
The shot was poorly taken and goalkeeper, Eduard Mendy had to deal with it calmly with his left hand.
This action has angered the City fans and the player has taken full responsibility, adding that it was a bad decision he took.
He tweeted: “I would like to apologise to my teammates, staff and supporters for missing the penalty. It was a bad decision and I take full responsibility.”
Manchester City finally lost the game by two goals to one after taking the lead on the 44th minute mark through Raheem Sterling.
The lead was cancelled in the second half with a goal from Hakim Ziyech.
Another goal in injury time by Marcos Alonso secured all the three points for Chelsea who are now sitting third on the league log.
Both teams meet again later this month for the UEFA Champions League finals in Instanbul.
I would like to apologise to my teammates, staff and supporters for missing the penalty. It was a bad decision and I take full responsibility.
