Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has apologised to Chelsea defender David Luiz following Sunday's FA Cup semi-final clash at Wembley.

Aguero escaped disciplinary action from both referee Chris Foy and the Football Association for a late challenge on Luiz - but has taken to Twitter to publicly apologise to the Brazilian defender after the two-footed moment of madness.

The Argentinian tweeted to his 3.5 million followers: “I’ve contacted @DavidLuiz4 to apologise for what happened during the match. It was an impulse reaction that shouldn’t have happened.”

Luiz responded to Aguero's apology by tweeting: “Thank you @aguerosergiokun for a demonstration of character. We get to know great man and athletes this way."

Aguero is expected to take part in Manchester City's Premier League match against Wigan Athletic on Wednesday following the FA's decision not to take action against the 24-year-old, and will be influential for his side in the Premier League run-in.

City manager Roberto Mancini will be delighted with the verdict, as Aguero has scored vital goals against both Manchester United and Chelsea in recent weeks for the Citizens. 

The £38million forward has managed to score 15 goals in 34 games for City this season, despite being plagued with niggling injuries throughout the campaign at the Etihad Stadium.
