Pablo Zabaleta

Football News

Argentinian full-back Zabaleta has become synonymous with the blue of Manchester City in recent years. Since his move from La Liga outfit Espanyol in 2008, the 28-year-old's energetic and tenacious performances have earned him cult status among City fans. 

Yet despite his popularity with the club's support, elsewhere Zabaleta still doesn't appear to receive the credit his consistency indisputably merits. While it is the team's illustrious attacking unit - featuring names such as David Silva, Yaya Youre and Sergio Aguero - that often attract the most attention, Zabaleta has proved just as important to the City cause in recent years and that is unlikely to change under new boss Manuel Pellegrini.
