IN PICTURES: Pablo Zabaleta’s birthday cake


Take a look at Pablo Zabaleta’s birthday cake provided by the player’s doting girlfriend, Christel Castaño, who once admitted she thought fish and chips “was a joke”.

The Manchester City number 5 celebrated turning twenty-eight on January 16th and Spanish stunner Castaño, who appeared in the first season of Spanish reality TV show Supermodelo, seems to have come up trumps with this year’s culinary delight.

The cake features a likeness of the Argentina international, complete with some sort of Manchester City cape and a bandage similar to the one Zabaleta wore after being kicked in the head by Steven Fletcher during City’s 0-1 loss to Sunderland on Boxing Day.

Zabaleta showed off the cake and rightly saluted his girlfriend on Twitter:

Muy graciosa, gracias amor!! Very funny, thanks to my girlfriend!! twitter.com/pablo_zabaleta…

Is it better than last year’s cake that also included the Premier League trophy though?
