Man City striker Aguero suspended for four matches

Manchester, Dec 5 (IANS) Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero was on Monday banned for four games and his team-mate Fernandinho for three matches by the English Football Association (FA).

Aguero, who was retrospectively banned earlier in the season after a clash with West Ham’s Winston Reid, was sent off against Chelsea in a 1-3 defeat on Saturday in a Premier League match, according to a FA statement.

Aguero will now miss the games against Leicester City, Watford, Arsenal and Hull City but will be available for Tuesday’s Champions League game with Celtic and the New Year’s Eve clash with Liverpool.

Fernandinho, who was also dismissed against Chelsea, has received a three-match domestic ban and will be available next for their trip to Hull on December 26.

City has decided to accept the verdicts and won’t appeal against them.
