Manchester City have unveiled a permanent tribute to the club’s legendary trio Colin Bell, Francis Lee and Mike Summerbee outside the Etihad Stadium, in remembrance of their combined 30 years football service at the club.

Celebrating Manchester City’s success of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the bronze artwork of the men on a single plinth captures three of the most popular players in the club’s history.

Manchester City’s Chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “This statue honours three players who are unquestionably City legends and have deservedly earned a special place in the history of the Club and hearts of the whole City family.

“The artist’s decision to feature the three men in motion on a single plinth, as well as include the 29 names of their teammates, gives us the opportunity to acknowledge a trophy- winning era of City football history that has, and will, resonate for generations to come.”
