Chelsea defender David Luiz has accepted Sergio Aguero's apology following the Argentinian's two-footed challenge on Sunday.
City striker Sergio Aguero wrote on his official Twitter account: "I've contacted @DavidLuiz-4 and apologized for what happened during the match. It was an impulse reaction that shouldn't have happened."
Luiz responded: "Thank you @aguerosergiokun for a demonstration of character. We get to know great man and athletes this way."
Both of Aguero's boots made contact with the upper part of Luiz's left leg as the two tangled late in City's 2-1 win, which secured a place against Wigan in next month's final.
The Argentina international will face no action over the challenge after the Football Association confirmed referee Chris Foy had seen at least part of the incident and acted on it during the match, meaning the governing body were unable to deal with it retrospectively.
Luiz suffered no serious harm in the challenge and played on until the end of the match ...
