Video: Pablo Zabaleta Surprises Manchester City Fans Before Leaving The Club

Pablo Zabaleta surprised a group of Manchester City fans before his move to West Ham United.

The Argentine defender joined up with City in 2008 and made over 330 appearances with the club before his departure this week.

During his time at the Etihad, Zabaleta won the FA Cup once, two Premier League titles and the League Cup on two occasions.

But 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 seven 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 say thanks and give them one final goodbye hug.

City fans, get the tissues ready.

West Ham confirmed the signing of the 32-year-old earlier today on a two-year contract as they prepare for next season.
