Zabaleta’s soft touch makes a fan cry
Defender Pablo Zabaleta reduced a Manchester City fan to tears after their away match against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
After City’s 4-2 win, Zabaleta handed his shirt to Jen Warren as the City players applauded the travelling fans.
Overwhelmed by the gift, the fan cried, and the scene was captured live on television.
A jubilant Warren later tweeted a photo of her holding the shirt.
Her day got even better when Zabaleta tweeted the picture back, and wrote: “Thank you so much for travelling and show a great support to the team!! don’t wash it haha.”
She answered: I’ll never wash it, can I ask you to sign it please? #cheeky.
