- Angelo Ogbonna grabbed Sergio Aguero by his balls during Man City vs West Ham
- That was in an effort to prevent the Argentine from scoring
- Aguero failed to score even though Man City beat West Ham 2-0
Manchester City on Wednesday night, February 19, continued with their efforts on catching Liverpool on the Premier League standings after beating West Ham United 2-0.
This win for the Citizens came days after they were banned from playing Champions League for two seasons after been declared guilty of breaking rules by UEFA.
City chiefs are planning to appeal the decision and they are hopeful that the verdict will be reversed for them to continue in the Champions League.
And while waiting for that, Manchester City went on with their game in the Premier League beating West Ham United with Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne netting the goal for the Citizens.
But there was a drama in the tie between Pep Guardiola's men and West Ham which has to do with striker Sergio Aguero.
Sergio Aguero has so far scored 16 goals for Manchester City in the Premier League and he was on the verge of netting his 17th before being stopped by defender Angelo Ogbonna.
The 31-year-old Italian footballer stopped Aguero from scoring by grabbing his private parts and he succeeded in making sure that the Argentine did not score.
Manchester City stars raised their voices for the referee to give a penalty or possibly check the VAR system, but the center man looked away as Ogbonna escaped being punished.
Even pundits like Micah Richards and Jamie Redknapp were surprised that Angelo Ogbonna was not given a card for what he did.
The Citizens went on to win the match with Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne scoring.
Liverpool are still topping the standings and they have now opened 22 points lead in which many have already tipped them to be crowned champions of England.
Jurgen Klopp's men may not be doing well in the Champions League, but they are unbeaten so far this term in the Premier League.
In addition, the Premier League defending champions have been slammed with £25 million fine, but the Etihad Stadium outfit has filed has appealed the punishment.
