Zabaleta: Man City now bigger than Man Utd

Manchester City fullback Pablo Zabaleta says they now dominate over local rivals Manchester United.

Speaking to the Mirror, Zabaleta praised the fans for their support and believes that the Blues can now lay claim to bragging rights in Manchester.

"After six years I can say I am a Mancunian," he said.

"I really like the new song the fans sing about me saying that.

"I want to be one of those players who all the City fans remember. When I came to Manchester the big club was United. You can't say the same thing about Manchester now.

"City have a bigger reputation - not just in England, but around the world.

"I feel very proud to be part of it - and say I am one of the survivors of that time before the money!"
