Guardiola wants winning send-off for City stalwart Zabaleta

Guardiola wants winning send-off for City stalwart Zabaleta

"After next Sunday, we will start talking with individuals", the Spaniard said. I'm sure we are improving, for the next two games and for next season as well.

The final week of the Premier League season features most of the teams with very little to play for.

"Now what I want are more trophies for the club. It's something that I'm prepared for and I will try to enjoy it like a kid of 10 years old".

Zabaleta joined City from Espanyol for £6.45 million (RM35.9 million) on August 31, 2008, a day before the Abu Dhabi United Group, led by billionaire Sheikh Mansour, completed a takeover that transformed the club's fortunes.

"I remember at that time [Sir Alex] Ferguson and the 'noisy neighbours, ' and this is something that I have been since that time! I hope all the fans can come to support us, as we are playing for a lot of important things, but also so they can express gratitude for one of the most important players in the history of Manchester City". Senior City sources said that there was a "strong chance" Touré would be offered a one-year contract...

The Premier League match against Albion will mark his final home appearance, and the club are planning tributes to mark the occasion.

"He's tough, he gets into challenges where usually he has no right to win them, but he gets out on the winning end". He's an exceptional professional and someone who has been extremely reliable. "And with him you have that feeling he could save the game".

"He helped us with his team-mates, with the club, to make a step forward, to try to qualify for the Champions League, to win the Premier League, to be in Europe three or four times in a row when it was never in Europe for 30 years".

Meanwhile, Guardiola claims his first season at City would have ended in the sack at former clubs Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

"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".
