An 11 year old boy from Manchester has been sent home on his first day of high school over a 'severe' Sergio Aguero style haircut. Garry Hill also got into bother over his 'trainer' shoes.

The Manchester City fan was pulled up by a teacher at, Astley Sports College in Dukinfield, about the two shaved lines on his hair - just like the striker. After being told he'd have to go home the boy's dad Garry snr, 45, drove to school and spoke to the headteacher.

“I was told the haircut was unacceptable. I said I would take him home and shave out the lines. But then I was told his shoes were unacceptable. I told them I had bought them from Trespass from their back-to-school range.”

Headteacher, Eamonn Murphy told the MEN: “These are the rules and parents know them.”

The school’s website makes it clear hair with ‘steps’ or ‘tramlines’ aren’t acceptable and nor are black shoes with velcro straps instead of laces.

Sergio Aguer-no! Pupil with copycat hair cut told to stay home

A schoolboy who had his haircut like football Sergio Aguero has been told he can't attend lessons with it on show.

Ten-year-old Tom Moseley was told his hairstyle, modelled on the Manchester City striker’s look, was too extreme by staff St Gilbert’s Primary School in Eccles. His family told the MEN they were told he could return to classes when his hair had grown, restyle it or wear a hat at all times.

Parents Lisa, 39, and Kirk, 43, have decided to keep Tom out of school, likening the school’s hat suggestion to wearing a ‘dunce’s cap’.

“We set clear standards on hair and dress at this school which parents are made fully aware of and accept when pupils enrol.

“We always suggest that an unsuitable haircut can be trimmed into an acceptable style without going down the skinhead route or that the child can wear a hat of their choice in school.

Lee has supported City for more than 21 years and so could hardly contain his disbelief at this incredible turn of events.

He said: “Sergio Aguero was literally the last person on earth I’d expect to see on my front-doorstep or in Stretford for that matter!”

“Getting the job at City was a dream come true as it was, let alone your hero coming to personally give your staff pass. It was a surprise I will never forget. ”

Manchester City's top scorer Sergio Aguero does not intend to take short cuts in his recovery from injury.

Aguero, who has scored 26 goals for City this term, has been out since suffering a hamstring injury in the Champions League loss at Barcelona on March 12.

It is his third setback of an otherwise outstanding season following previous calf and hamstring problems.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini hinted last week that Aguero could be fit to face Southampton this Saturday but the player himself - also crucial to Argentina's World Cup campaign - is cautious.

The 25-year-old told DirecTV: "With this recovery I am trying to do my best to be able to play again, but I cannot do it in a hurry.

"I do think to myself if something happens now, I will lose the rest of the Premier League season and the World Cup."
