Match Worn Shirt


Fernandinho


Did you Know?

On 6 June 2013, Fernandinho became Manchester City’s first signing of the summer, for a fee of £34 million. He signed a four-year deal and is understood to have waived around £4 million owed to him by Shakhtar in order to complete the transfer, as he was desperate to secure a move away from the Ukrainian club. During his time at Shakhtar, the Brazilian wore the number 7 shirt, but due to midfielder James Milner already occupying the number at City, Fernandinho had to choose another. In an interview with Manchester City, Fernandinho recalled a conversation with his son in which his son said, “My dad is the new number 25,” and so Fernandinho subsequently chose 25 as his new number. Fernandinho made his Premier League debut on 19 August 2013 against Newcastle United in a 4–0 home win. He scored his first two goals for Manchester City on 14 December 2013 against Arsenal in a 6–3 home win and was also named man of the match after a classical display. On 1 January 2014, he scored his third goal of the season in a 2–3 away win against Swansea City. On 2 February, Fernandinho sustained a thigh injury in training, which kept him out of action for two weeks. On 2 March, Fernandinho appeared for City in the League Cup final against Sunderland, where he won his first trophy in England with a 3–1 win. On 11 May, Fernandinho was part of the squad who secured the Premier League title in a 2–0 win against West Ham United. He did not start the game, but appeared as a substitute for striker Edin Džeko in the 69th minute.

2019/2020


Everton vs Manchester City


Match Worn Unwashed Shirt


Ederson Moraes


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Ederson in the second half of the Premier League’s game between Everton and Manchester City which took place in Liverpool, “Goodison Park” Stadium, on September 28th 2019. Manchester City defeated Everton 3-1 and at the end of the game Ederson threw his shirt to City’s fans. We got the shirt from the fan who got the shirt in the stadium’s stand. This season, Manchester City replaced his former kit’s supplier Nike with Puma. This shirt also represents 125th anniversary’s kit that takes place in 2019. Ederson joined Manchester City in 2017. On 1 June 2017, Benfica announced that he had joined Premier League’s club for £35 million (€40 million). At the time, the transfer made him the second most expensive goalkeeper of all-time – currently fourth highest – after Gianluigi Buffon (£33 million), whose transfer fee, although the second highest ever in pounds sterling, still remained the highest of all time in euros (€52 million in 2001) until Alisson’s (€75 million in 2018) and now Kepa Arrizabalaga’s (€80 million in 2018). Ederson’s transfer equalled Axel Witsel’s as the largest fee a club has ever paid for a Benfica player. Ederson was immediately inserted as Pep Guardiola’s first choice goalkeeper, supplanting Claudio Bravo. He made his competitive debut for the club on 12 August 2017 in a 0–2 away win at Brighton & Hove Albion, where he kept a clean sheet. On 9 September against Liverpool, Ederson suffered a kick to the face by Sadio Mané, and was forced to leave the game after eight minutes of treatment. Ederson received eight stitches, and Mané was sent off by referee Jon Moss and banned for the subsequent three matches.[citation needed] Ederson made his next start the following week in the Champions League against Feyenoord, sporting a piece of protective headgear. On 19 August 2018, Ederson became the first Manchester City goalkeeper to provide a Premier League assist, as his goal-kick was converted by Sergio Agüero for the opening goal in a 6–1 win over Huddersfield Town.
