Beeb says 'mutually terminated'. After barely featuring in a handful of their games (and that's a regular hand, not a swamp dweller's six fingered abomination).

One of the best footballers I've ever seen.

One of the thickest human beings I've ever seen.

I have a massive soft spot for this fella......he was the epitome of a big game player just like Vinnie. I genuinely believe that without him we’d not have won anything until Pep !!
Enjoy your retirement my man x

What can I say? I would have wanted himto be any other way.
Love him with all of atticks. In his prime he was one of the best this league ever had.

Legend? No other word for him.

PS: Another one that has a soft spot and loves the fans. Sky was saying that they played here only for the paycheck?

Good luck in his retirement. A colossus for us whose impact in bringing in a winners mentality can’t ever be underestimated.

The highlights from his years at City are incredible. Youtube took this video down but there is still a Chinese link:

Amazing find! Thanks - I spent about an hour trying to find this video yesterday.

Anyone who hasn't seen it needs to set aside 45 mins to be reminded what a legend this guy is

Apparently he’s out of retirement already. Proper odd ball.

Loved seeing him on the pitch yesterday and all the players surrounding him.

Nice article that reminds us that whilst there is debate about whether our greatest ever player is as good as the likes of Giggs, Lampard, Gerrard, there is a player who is not our greatest ever player that was better than all three of them.
