Manchester City Zabaleta announcement opens door for Bilic — Transfer Focus

"Of course, with the players who were a long time here, it's so important because with Pablo it's how he teaches the new generation and the people who are coming from behind".

While we're loathe to use the word "gushing" in any context, the Belgian skipper's honest admiration was definitely approaching those levels.

He epitomises what the fans have loved about City for so many years even before our era.

He's an exceptional professional and someone who has been extremely reliable. We are going to be ready. "It's something that I'm prepared for and I will try to enjoy it like a kid of 10 years old".

Is there one particular injury that stands out? "In the first half we were good and it was a shame to concede an wonderful goal". In my situation at a big club - I'm sacked, I'm out.

"We arrived at times to the byline but the last pass was not properly good and we missed the chances to nearly the finish the game". "He leaves behind many happy memories".

His first goal against QPR [in 2012] was massive for us. "We have to look after our boots!" The Argentine made three tackles and won three aerial duels, while Kompany made three tackles and won four aerial duels.

On Saturday, as he was making his way along the touchline toward the dressing room after the final whistle, Wenger gave a wave to Arsenal's visiting supporters and they roared their approval. And he was always one of them.

"We played well but we couldn't score enough goals and we had to fight until the very last minute".


Toure can still control games, and that's what Guardiola has seen since restoring him to the line-up in November. Whether or not it was intentional, Dinho needs to have much better discipline in the future.

I think that is what we have mentioned in previous weeks. City's league record against Leicester over the past two season have been one draw and two defeats.

Swansea's players paid for the tickets of the 3,000 away fans, and the traveling contingent saw their team notch a third win in four games.

But there are plenty of midfielders; younger, fitter and significantly cheaper who can take the club forward under Guardiola. Although Leicester got 4 shots on target, none of them went in other than Shinji Okazaki's lone goal. I remember at that time [Sir Alex] Ferguson and the "noisy neighbours" and this is something that I have been since that time!

It is hard to find complaint with his attitude either.

"I have a lot of respect for Pablo", Guardiola told a news conference yesterday.

And only players like this would survive at this club anyway because of the competition there's been for so many years now.

"I knew something wasn't right from the spin of the ball [at the penalty], but that wasn't given in the Champions League, so you never know with the consistency".

Zabaleta, 32, one of seven players out of contract this summer, asked to leave and has received an offer from West Ham United. West Brom will be tough but hopefully we can be better than today.
