Man City's festive surprise for lucky school children

Manchester City players made a surprise appearance during a school tour of the Etihad Stadium.

Mario Balotelli, Joe Hart, Micah Richards and James Milner greeted the 11 and 12-year-olds from Mellands Specialist School.

The children were presented with club shirts that had their names on the back, got to lift the Premier League trophy and took penalties against Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Balotelli said: "It was all for the young children. 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."
