Man City on brink of Champions League spot after beating West Brom

Man City on brink of Champions League spot after beating West Brom

The popular Argentine right-back, who has been at the Etihad for nine years, is due to leave the club at the end of the season.

"As a football player and as a football fan it was a dream to come to the Premier League", Zabaleta said in an on-pitch address to fans.

"It will be an emotional moment for me".

He said: "If what happens next season is not going well, I'll have one more year of contract, and if it's not going well they are going to change manager".

"Today he played really good".

Midfielder Fernandinho told reporters after Tuesday's 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion: "He's a top player".

Unlike Zabaleta, whose departure after nine years was announced on Saturday, Toure - a driving force in City's midfield since 2010 - doesn't yet know if this is his last season at City. "Here I have a second chance and I will try to do it better next season".

"I remember at that time [Sir Alex] Ferguson and the 'noisy neighbours, ' and this is something that I have been since that time!"

"I would not say it's done, fourth, but Arsenal have to win five or 6-0 to qualify fourth, but we are there".

Do you think Guardiola and City will be better next season with the help of the summer transfer window? "It's a real final for us, and we are going to be ready".

"But the fact I have been here from day one is something that has made me very proud".

On Tuesday captain Vincent Kompany presented him with a shirt bearing the number 333, representing his City appearances. He's an exceptional professional and someone who has been extremely reliable. "That's the thing you have to accept and get on with it".

City need a point from their final game at Watford to be certain of Champions League qualification while a victory would see Pep Guardiola's side finish third.

"I saw many people crying and they are realising the impact Pablo had on the club".

Pablo Zabaleta got a rousing send-off.

Guardiola said for the time being, however, he was fully focused on ensuring City won both their remaining games, including Sunday's trip to Watford, to finish as high up the table as possible.
