'It's difficult to defend it. It's a really poor challenge' said Trevor Sinclair regarding Sergio Aguero's shocking tackle on David Luiz during Chelsea's 3-1 against Man City on Saturday afternoon.
Sinclair, who was sitting on the Goals On Sunday couch along with Stuart Pearce, then proceeded to offer the worst defence possible.
Deep into injury time at the City of Manchester Stadium, Aguero lunged towards Luiz with a dangerous knee-high tackle which incensed Chelsea players. Referee Anthony Taylor immediately showed Aguero a red card. Fernandinho was also send off for pushing Cesc Fabregas over the advertising hoardings.
Sinclair offered emotions roused by the Chapocoense plane disaster, in which 71 people died earlier this week, as a possible explanation for Aguero's wild challenge and the fracas which followed.
The only thing that I can say to kind of get my head around what went on there and what went afterwards is the Chapocoense situation where lots of players that I'm sure lots of these boys have grown up with have died.
Emotions are really really high. I think something like that has come into play mentally with the players. Just emotions have got a little too much. I'm sure they've been emotional over the last few days. Obviously, it's a real disaster and a tragedy.
