Video: Sergio Aguero stops game so Everton fan can receive medical assistance
An Everton fan behind goal collapsed after suffering an epileptic fit which Aguero spotted and quickly signalled the medical staff
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is one of those football players who is loved by the fans and respected by rivals. And last season’s EPL Golden Boot winner showed his class once again during the Premier League match against Everton.
Man City had won the game 2-0 with goals from Aleksandar Kolarov and Samir Nasri, but one of the highlights of the game was Aguero stopping the game so an Everton fan behind the goal could receive some medical assistance.
City had won a corner when the Argentine striker noticed that the Everton fan had suffered an epileptic fit and collapsed. He immediately put his arms up to signal the referee and the medical staff on the touchline to look into the matter. Seamus Coleman also realized what was going on and made sure the game was stopped, urgently pointing to where the fan lay.
As ground staff rushed to the fan in distress, Aguero kept a close eye on proceedings from near the goalpost until the fan was looked after. It was a move that deservedly received plaudits from all around. While he may enthrall us with what he does on the pitch, incidents like this highlight the fact that he is also a very good human being.
Of course, the humble striker did not make much of it after the game and even posted on Twitter that he did what anyone else would have done.
Everton also posted an update on the fan’s condition on their Twitter account.
