However, there was still plenty for the hugely popular Belgian - who left City at the end of last season after 11 trophy-laden years at the club - to enjoy in front of 51,602 adoring fans.

And maybe that is because there were some suggestions that Balo - who played for City between 2010 and 2013 - had not actually told his employers, Brescia, about his whereabouts, with the player due back at training first thing on Thursday morning!

NEV OR CARRA: WHO WAS TO BLAME?

The Man City Legends made a dream start to proceedings by scoring virtually straight from the kick-off as the pace of Martin Petrov down the left saw Gary Neville left for dead, before the former City winger fired home into the roof of the net.

The 29-year-old currently plays as a left-back for Belgian First Division B side Roeselare, with Vincent saying his only regret of the night was not being able to play alongside Francois in the same team.
