Manchester City: Fans salute Kevin Horlock after his tweet about Premier League promotion in 2000

Manchester City: Fans salute Kevin Horlock after his tweet about Premier League promotion in 2000 - Manchester City

Plenty of Manchester City fans lavished praise on the club’s former midfielder Kevin Horlock after a tweet he shared on Thursday (via @Kevinhorlock6).

Yesterday marked the 20-year anniversary of City’s win away to Blackburn which sealed promotion to the Premier League just 12 months after they came up from the third tier following the epic play-off final triumph over Gillingham, in which Horlock scored.

As per Manchester Evening News, the Cityzens only needed a draw at Ewood Park to seal their top-flight return after a four-year absence but ultimately ran out 4-1 winners despite being a goal down with only half an hour to play. Shaun Goater, Mark Kennedy and Paul Dickov were all on target for the visitors while Christian Dailly’s own goal added to the party.

Horlock, who played for the club for six-and-a-half years between 1997 and 2003, was involved in both promotion campaigns and also featured in the Premier League for them. He ended his time at Maine Road with 44 goals in 233 games.
