Pablo Zabaleta Gave A Supremely Honest & Heartbreaking Interview On His City Farewell

He's been key to City winning two Premier League titles, two League Cups and an FA Cup - but Zabaleta has proven to be so much more than a brilliant footballer. He made that one chance with Sergio and scored that lovely goal.

Just before the hour, Aguero fed the ball to Tour and the big Ivorian burst away from a couple of challenges to get into the box in trademark fashion before beat Foster. Hopefully they can win it one day because that is the competition we are looking for and this club is trying to win.

Guardiola is prepared to embrace the "second chance" he believes City has given him, but said he could lose his job next season if the results did not improve.

"But with the 10 minutes of injury time we had at the end, they defended quite well, so congratulations to the team. We played two finals against Crystal Palace and Leicester, we have two more and hopefully the players are focused and committed". It's my first year here but when I saw what I saw tonight I see what an impact he has had for this club.

"But if he asks me for advice I would tell him to stay - he's a great player". "For me, we couldn't let people say something like that about us".

Guardiola's first season in English football will end at Watford on Sunday with the Catalan failing to win silverware for the first time in his stellar managerial career. "It's something that I'm prepared for and I will try to enjoy it like a kid of 10 years old".

"He has helped the club to where it is right now", City manager Pep Guardiola said on Monday, describing Zabaleta as "one of the most important players in the history of Manchester City".

"It was a slow start to the season but we picked up and it's been a fantastic journey and a fantastic ride", said Pulis.

"I have been struggling to sleep properly because I have been thinking about it".

However, he felt that City's first goal should not have stood, with Raheem Sterling swinging a leg at Silva's goal-bound shot, and missing it while standing in an offside position. He deserves absolutely everything and we are very happy for that. "I'm out. Sure. Definitely", he said, as quoted by The Times.
