Felt very emotional today, but loved the fact that the best player I have seen over 40 years watching City walked off with a beaming smile on his face. He knows how loved he is and I can’t wait to be there when he comes back to take his acclaim - top player and lovely human being.
Tears from both of us as he left the pitch. He has given so much for the club. A Premier League great. A Manchester City Legend. My two City supporting granddaughters love him and will carry his name into generations that I can’t. Thank you David it has been an absolute privilege.
Tears of joy, tears of sadness this evening. Bye, David El Mago, and thanks for ten unbelievable years. A truly great footballer, man and human being. It’s been a real privilege to witness your achievements here. It’s not quite over: let’s see off Real and then add that CL medal to your collection.
