In 1969, Manchester City won the fourth FA Cup in the club’s history when a goal from Neil Young helped Joe Mercer’s side overcome Leicester in the final at Wembley.
And 50 years later, Pep Guardiola’s players have paid tribute to that legendary team ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final clash with Watford.
Before the game, the players warmed up in gorgeous red and black jerseys featuring the Manchester coat of arms and the names of the ’69 team – many of whom were also in attendance at Wembley.
The spirit of '69! 🔴⚫️
Paying homage to Neil Young and co. who triumphed in the #FACupFinal 50 years ago with these 🔥 warm-up tops!

City have the chance to win the club’s sixth FA Cup and clinch an unprecedented English domestic treble if they’re able to get past Watford.
And there could be no greater tribute to Colin Bell, Francis Lee, Mike Summerbee and co than that.
