ANTHONY KNOCKAERT’S son produced one of the cutest moments of the season when he kissed Sergio Aguero on the cheek.
Little Ilyan, four, landed the adorable peck on the Argentine great before kick-off in Manchester City’s title decider against Brighton on Sunday.
Anthony Knockaert’s son planted an adorable kiss on Sergio Aguero’s cheek before kick-off on SundayTwitter @ManCityAs the players shook hands, Knockaert Jr was carried by his dad and put his hand on Aguero’s shoulder to lean in and give the cheeky kiss.
Knockaert uploaded the video to his Instagram and wrote: “When my cheeky boy sees Aguero,” with a laughing emoji, the monkey-covering-eyes emoji and a love heart.
The Premier League pair both laughed at the adorable toddler, who did a tiny nod of appreciation as he was carried away.
And plenty on social media believed the nod was in recognition of Aguero’s legendary status.
Manchester City posted the video with the caption: “Cuteness level: 100.”
And the replies flooded in.
One wrote: “Wow so sweet. Even Kun wasn’t expecting that.”
Another added: “It’s the nod, the little nod.”
And a third wrote: “It’s that little knowing nod, after the kiss…kinda saying you’re one of the best ! #loveit”
After Brighton striker Glenn Murray threatened to cause a major shock, Aguero led the line by example by scoring the equaliser just a minute later.
Goals from Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan secured a 4-1 win to ensure Pep Guardiola’s side retained their Prem crown.
But plenty of the comments were all about Mini Knockaert, and rightly so.
