City warrior Pablo Zabaleta remains in Buenos Aires by his critically ill father's side. His fighting spirit is already sorely missed in the Blues squad...
Without a shadow of doubt, Zaba has been brilliant for Manchester City and continues to be a terrific servant for the club.
Since signing for City from Espanyol on the last day of the summer transfer window in summer 2008, the day Robinho came to town, 26 year old Zaba has clocked up 95 league and cup starts, 18 substitute appearances and scored 2 goals.
He's played just about everywhere for Mark Hughes and Roberto Mancini outside of goalkeeper and centre forward and on each occasion, given it the maximum effort. In his early City career he had a tendency to dive into the tackle too readily when the heat was on, but he's since added some savvy to his reading of the English game.
The situation right now is that the club have given Zaba indefinite leave to be by his father's side in the Pergamino province of Buenos Aires since he was seriously injured in a car crash in Buenos Aires one week ago and taken to intensive care where he remains in a coma.
Leave your message of support for Zaba here at VMC and we'll pass it to our friends at the club for onward transmission.
