Manchester: Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has apologised to David Luiz for his ugly two-footed stamp on the back of the Chelsea defender's thighs during Sunday's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium.

Aguero says in a Twitter post that he has contacted Luiz to say sorry for the 85th-minute tackle in City's 2-1 win, adding that it was an "impulse reaction that shouldn't have happened."

Luiz used Twitter to thank the Argentina international for a "demonstration of character. We get to know great man and athletes this way."

Aguero says in a Twitter post that he has contacted Luiz to say sorry for the 85th-minute tackle in City's 2-1 FA Cup win over Chelsea.

Aguero escaped any retrospective punishment - a likely three-match ban - for the tackle because referee Chris Foy confirmed he saw at least part of the incident and acted on it during the match.
