RETIRED boxing star Ricky Hatton rolled back the years for Manchester City fans by posing with one of their greatest ever stars.
Hatton, 39, took to Instagram to post of a picture of him with Georgi Kinkladze.
Kingkladze was a firm fan favourite when he played for City from 1995 to 1998.
Hatton wrote: “Great night last night with city legend Georgi Kinkladze. Some player he was.
“My favourite back in the day. Top guy as well.”
And his picture with Hatton, a lifelong Blues fan, sent fans of the Premier League winners into a frenzy.
“I had a City shirt with his name on. Legend”
One fan wrote: “I had a City shirt with his name on. Legend.”
Another said: “He’d be worth a fortune these days, unbelievable talent.”
And another hailed: “Legends. One of my best City players ever.”
His appearance even had fans from other clubs hailing his talent.
One commented: “I’m a West Brom fan and I remember Man City being in town in 1997 and they beat us 3-1.
“Kinkladze absolutely destroyed us that day, and he was pure magic. What a player that guy was.”
Even a supporter of arch rivals Manchester United was full of praise.
He said: “As a United fan I couldn’t help but love this guy. The only City player I ever liked.”
