26 Players from the Manchester City first team have pledged to pay for a coach each to transport Man City fans to and fro the Wembley Stadium for the FA Cup Final.
Speaking to reporters, club captain, Vincent Kompany said
“The support from our fans throughout the season has been nothing short of incredible. Travelling to so many games in league and cup competitions, both home and away, is not easy to do and is something that every player in our squad values and appreciates,”
Speaking on their Champions League exit, Kompany said:
“Although the result was not the one that we had hoped for, it was very special to hear our fans in full voice for ninety minutes backing the team,”
“We still have so much to fight for this season, and this is our way of saying thank you to them for being with us every step of the way.”
The coaches for the 420 mile (680km) round-trip to London will be funded by each of the 26 players in the first team squad.
