MANCHESTER: Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has defended Sergio Aguero after the striker found himself surrounded in controversy after touching a lineswoman Sian Massey-Ellis during Premier League clash against Arsenal.

"The incident took place just before the half-time at Etihad Stadium. Aguero had taken an exception to Massey-Ellis signalling for a throw-in for Arsenal," Goal.com reported.

The Manchester City striker confronted the lineswoman and was seen grabbing her by the shoulder. The lineswoman was then seen swatting Aguero's arm away from her.

In the match against Arsenal, City registered a 1-0 victory as Raheem Sterling scored a goal in the 23rd minute of the match.

"Come on guys. Sergio is the nicest person I ever met in my life. Look for problems in other situations, not in this one," Goal.com quoted Guardiola as saying.

While the gaffer seems to be okay with the action, many on Twitter questioned the striker amid few supporters too. Here are some reactions:
