Atletico Madrid president furious with Aguero's Australia jaunt

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo is furious that striker Sergio Aguero was called away with Argentina last week for their friendly in Australia - only to play for less than 60 seconds.

"It seems to me absolutely ridiculous that a player must travel to the other side of the world for a friendly game," said Cerezo, "especially when it is the club that pays his wages.

"If it was an official Copa America game you could understand it, but for a friendly it is not good enough.

"The only good thing was that he hardly played, so there was no risk of injury."
