Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has become embroiled in a 2022 FIFA World Cup spat with the Argentine Football Association.   

The South American giants got off to the worst possible start at the World Cup after going down to Saudi Arabia 2-1 in their Group B opener on Tuesday.

The Albiceleste were widely expected to win the match given that they were unbeaten in 36 matches and rank almost 50 places above of their opponents on the FIFA rankings.

However, it was not to be as the Saudis claimed a historic win over Lionel Messi and company, one that saw them go top of Group C.

While the two-time World Cup winners were disappointed with the result, their former striker Aguero was left incensed by the fact that he was not allowed access the team's training base in Qatar, despite being in the country to support the side.

The ex-FC Barcelona marksman has since hit out at Argentina for their approach to sorting out his accreditation.

"I haven't seen the national team yet," Aguero said, according to the Daily Express.

"Hey, let's see, but everything is kind of weird. Supposedly, you have to have a credential to pass through.

"It sounds strange to me that it takes three or four days to arrange. I asked and was told the decision has come from above  but I see there are others who have been allowed in.

"It's strange that they can't give me the right credentials quickly. I've been in the national team and know they make a credential for you quickly.

"What do I know? I'm not going to bother.

"I'm going to wait for everything to finish. I wanted to go earlier, to wish them luck. The situation is rare.

"I've never done anyone wrong . I've always behaved well. Maybe there are people who don't like being told bad things.

"It annoys me that others arrive the same day of their trip and suddenly they are in there. I sent a good luck message.

"If they don't want me to go, it's all good, but tell me to my face.

"I'm waiting for someone from the AFA to call me and tell me something."
