Premier League champions Manchester City have given local youngsters the surprise of a lifetime during a tour of the Etihad Stadium.
The children from Mellands Specialist School in Gorton met Mario Balotelli, Joe Hart, James Milner & Micah Richards, lifted the Premier League trophy and got changed in the first team dressing room.
"It was all for the young children," said Mario. "They really appreciated meeting all the players and we appreciated meeting them too. I hope we made their day and gave them an afternoon they will never forget. We all enjoyed it."
