Kinkladze: The magician of Maine Road

On the anniversary of his wonderful solo goal against West Ham in 1998, we revisit 'Kinkladze: The Magician of Maine Road'

In our City Studios production, Kinkladze: The Magician of Maine Road, the man affectionally known as ‘Kinky’, as well as a host of former team-mates and fans, recount the Georgian’s unforgettable spell at City.

Blessed with an outstanding amount of natural ability, Kinkladze was a unique talent who became the star of a struggling City side during a three-year spell in which he lit up Maine Road with his vast repertoire skills.

In this 46 minute feature, the mesmerising midfielder reflects fondly on his time in Manchester, recollecting his iconic goal against Southampton and the many other highlights from his City career.

Kinkladze: The Magician of Maine Road also includes contributions from team-mates such as Michael Brown, Paul Dickov and Ian Brightwell, as well as a number of fans to whom the Georgian became a hero.

CITY+ subscribers can watch the feature in full in the video above.
