Zabaleta proud of relationship with Man City fans

Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta admits he enjoys a special relationship with fans.

Zabaleta was forced off during victory over Fulham with a slight injury.

A hugely popular figure among the Blues' supporters, the City defender left the pitch with his name echoing around the stadium and he was keen to point out the affection is mutual.

"It was a brilliant ovation as I came off from a fantastic set of fans," he told City's website. "I'd like to thank them for that and say that it means so much that people recognise and appreciate that you're giving 100% for the Club and that's what I will always do for City."
