ARSENAL fans couldn't get over the heartwarming moment Kanu met club legend Charlie George.
The former Gunners hitman met the legendary George during a recent trip to the Emirates to watch Mikel Arteta's troops.
George, 72, told Kanu: "I used to play for Arsenal in the '70s.
"And when I saw you, you made me love when you played because you played so free-spirited."
Kanu soon found himself in awe of George after being told the midfielder scored the winning in the 1971 FA Cup final to secure Arsenal's first-ever double.
The Nigerian shook George's hand before being shown one of his many goals for the north Londoners.
