Extra Time: David Hasselhoff watches Manchester City sink Stoke

The Baywatch and Knight Rider star watched Roberto Mancini's side in action on Tuesday afternoon and even got the chance to mingle with the players after the match

Manchester City hosted yet another Hollywood A-lister as they helped bring in the New Year in style, defeating Stoke City 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium. Yet, as rumours circulated over the presence of a certain David Hasselhoff, it was only after the match finished that we were treated to snaps of the iconic actor mingling with his adopted team.

Donning the sky-blue shirt with 'Hasselhoff' 10' on the back, the 60-year-old, famed for his lead roles in Knight Rider and Baywatch, grabbed the chance to flash his smile alongside the superstars of the Premier League champions.

And, while Hasselhoff showed he had the poise to slot in amongst millionaire footballers, Carlos Tevez took a slightly more infatuated pose as he stared back at the American. In fact, Javi Garcia even went as far as to audition for a reprisal of Baywatch, sidling up to Mitch Buchannon and flashing his Y-fronts.

The series of photos showed Hasselhoff take a particular shine to the Argentines Pablo Zabaleta and Sergio Aguero – with the latter having hobbled off injured in the second half. Nonetheless, he will know that Hasselhoff will be there for him.
