America-based Man City fan wins Pep Guardiola's famous hooded cardigan

Top work, Pep

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has raised over £6,000 for City in the Community by auctioning off his famous grey hooded matchday cardigan.

The 48-year-old revealed that he would be putting his prized possession up for auction at last month's FA Cup final at Wembley, which saw City complete a record-breaking domestic treble after thrashing Watford 6-0.

The Spaniard aimed to raise money for the club's foundation, City in the Community, which helps fund free school holiday community programs with free meals provided during the each session.

This initiative forms part of City in the Community's wider aim to support families in Manchester during school holidays.

James Hodge - who is based in the USA - was the lucky winner of Pep's interesting cardigan; the City mega-fan will receive his prize shortly.

Guardiola said: “I am delighted that this auction has raised so much for City in the Community and thank you to everyone who has donated for such a great cause.

“It is also fantastic to be able to give something personal to the fans whose support helped us achieve incredible success last season.”

Manchester City's head of 'City in the Community', Mike Green, added: “The response to the auctioning of Pep Guardiola’s cardigan has been fantastic, and we are delighted to see this incredible amount raised for City in the Community.

“We want to say a huge thank you to all the people who donated and to Pep for supporting us in this way.

“City in the Community’s free holiday football programme provides a fun environment for children across Manchester to keep active during school holidays.

“The addition of a free meal during the sessions helps us further support families in the local area, giving them access to healthy food in addition to exercise.

“These donations will go a long way to ensuring we can continue this provision throughout the summer and into next season.”
