Aguero caught Luiz with an ugly tackle during City's 2-1 victory on Sunday, infuriating the Brazil international, who immediately urged the the 24-year-old to apologise. Taking to Twitter, Aguero did just that and said the tackle had been a rash "impulse". "I've contacted @DavidLuiz_4 and apologized for what happened during the match.

We get to know great man and athletes this way," he wrote. Aguero escaped any sanctions after the match, with the FA confirming that it would not follow up on the incident.
