Sergio Aguero given extra time to appeal

London: Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been allowed an extra 24 hours for his appeal against a Football Association charge of violent conduct.

The club said their officials dealing with the paperwork would be heavily involved on Wednesday with transfer negotiations, so the FA had agreed to an extra day`s grace.

They now have until 1700 GMT on Thursday to decide whether to appeal.

The Argentine striker was charged following an incident involving West Ham defender Winston Reid during Sunday`s Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium.

If found guilty he will miss three matches, including the local derby against Manchester United on Sept. 10.
