Manchester City legend Pablo Zabaleta has announced his retirement as a player.
After leaving West Ham in the summer, Pablo has been considering his options and after careful consultation with his family, he has decided his playing days have come to an end.
Read his emotional post here-
Zaba spent nine years at City, clocking up 333 appearances, scoring 12 goals and becoming a huge fan favourite during his stay.
I’d imagine Zabaleta will enter the director and/or coaching ranks.
Zaba will always be welcome back in his adopted home city of Manchester.
If any footballer had City DNA running through him, it was Pablo Zabaleta.
Thank you, Pablo Zabaleta
