The legendary midfielder and Club Ambassasdor paid a visit to Malaysia Spurs at the BGK Lakeview Restaurant in the city.

Hosts Malaysia Spurs were joined by official supporters clubs from Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore at the event, MC'd by Malaysia Spurs member Matt Bellotti, who introduced Ossie before opening the floor to questions.

A range of subjects were covered from the team he starred in the early 1980s ('a wonderful team') to winning the World Cup with Argentina in 1978 ('it stays with you for the rest of your life'), the most talented player he played with (Diego Maradona) and his 'famous five' forward line in the 1994-95 season ('of course, it was a mistake, it should have been six up front!').

Then the highlight - an impromptu rendition of 'Ossie's Dream'!

Supporters then lined-up for autographs and photographs with Ossie before departing for the stadium.
