Manchester City today released a very special video in which seven fans were asked how much Pablo Zabaleta meant to them.
The Argentine defender joined City in 2008 and made over 330 appearances with the club before his departure this week.
He said his goodbyes to the club following last weekend’s 5-0 win at Watford.
As part of a final surprise, City TV invited these seven lucky fans to tell them how much they loved their former right-back.
But little did they know, Zabaleta was standing backstage listening to everything they said before eventually coming out from behind the curtain to surprise them.
Have a look at the heart-warming video:
Pablo was certainly loved by City fans especially young Callum Haworth. It’s hard not to shed a tear as Zabaleta gives these fans a day to remember.
Zabaleta won’t be leaving the Premier League however, West Ham today announced the signing of Argentine on a two year deal.
