Gabbiadini in the hot seat

Marco hits the bar this weekend.

Fans in the Black Cats Bar can catch up with Sunderland legend Marco Gabbiadini this Saturday.

The former striker is set to take to the hot seat for a pre-match talk in ahead of Sunderland's home clash with Tottenham at the Stadium of Light. 

Gabbiadini spent four years at Sunderland, moving to Roker Park from York City in 1987.

He quickly established himself as a key player and a crowd favourite for Sunderland by striking up a prolific partnership with fellow forward Eric Gates.

The duo, known as 'The G-Force', wrote their name in Wearside folklore after scoring the goals that helped 
fire Sunderland to the Third Division championship, with Gabbiadini grabbing 21 goals in 35 league appearances during his first season at the club. 

Gabbiadini will be in the Black Cats Bar from 11.45am on Saturday.

The talk-ins are part of Black Cats Bar matchdays, where fans can enjoy a complimentary home-cooked meal, free programme and take advantage of drinks offers.

Tickets are priced at £50, for more information call 0871 911 1500
