“He looks over to Pep Guardiola like a naughty schoolboy to a teacher”: Jamie Redknapp meets with fans at Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero to score a terribly missed Panenka penalty against Chelsea
- City can officially seal the Premier League title if they beat Chelsea at Etihad
- Striker Raheem Sterling gave Guardiola’s side the lead just before the break
- They scored again, but Aguero gave Edouard Mendy a weak kick
Jamie Redknapp, along with fans, slammed Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero’s penalty technique against Chelsea after a weak Panenka was easily saved.
City can win the Premier League title if they beat Chelsea at Etihad on Saturday and take the lead through Raheem Sterling just before the break.
Pep Guardiola’s side could have doubled their lead a moment later after Billy Gilmour fouled Gabriel Jesus, but the Argentine shot a tame attempt straight into the center and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy picked it up with ease.

And the expert Redknapp, along with former Manchester City defender Micah Richards, criticized the casual nature of Aguero’s penalty kick in such a big game.
He said, ‘The Pa-Nenka. The pa stinker. He looks over at the manager. For example, if you are a naughty boy in school and you look at the teacher.
“I don’t know what he’s thinking. Just quit it! ‘
Richards added, “I snuck in here. I thought he would just put it home. Devastation.’
The expert Jamie Redknapp compared Aguero’s guilty look after the Miss with a “naughty schoolboy”.
Several fans and experts responded jokingly on social media to the Argentine striker’s panenka
Several fans reacted cheerfully on social media. One said: “Aguero missed an open goal and then missed a penalty within minutes. Sums it up in 2021.”
Another jokingly said that Aguero was wearing cumbersome boots when he took the penalty, and a third edited an image to show a confused Aguero staring at his penalty kick.
The host of the game of the day, Gary Lineker, humorously referred to his poor penalty attempt for England against Brazil, which would have tied it with Sir Bobby Charlton’s scoring record, and said, “Why would you ever try to score an important penalty? What a number. ‘
