Patrick Vieira is to lead City's latest social media coup by conducting a live Q&A session after Saturday's match against Bolton.

World Cup and European Championship winner Patrick will be interviewed live at 5.05pm with all the questions coming from his Twitter followers.

You can tune into #askpatrick live on - Manchester City are the first UK sports brand to stream live video through Twitter's new enhanced profile page. If you're at the Etihad Stadium, #askpatrick will be shown live on the big screens in City Square.

Vieira, now the Club's Football Development Executive, said: “I’m new to Twitter but have had a fantastic reception from all the fans so far and I’m really excited about this opportunity to talk to them directly.

"In the interview I'll be open to answering any kind of questions and will give honest and truthful answers. This is a great chance for people to ask the questions they wouldn’t normally get to pose.”

Fans can simply tweet their requests to @mcfc or @OfficialVieira, using the hashtag #askpatrick, and after the final whistle he will pick the best ones to answer.

It's easy to sign up for Twitter, but don't worry if you're not - you can also post questions on Patrick's Facebook page.
