Lifelong City fan Vera Cohen passes away

Lifelong City fan Vera Cohen passes away
Manchester City are saddened to learn of the passing of lifelong fan Vera Cohen.

Vera was a much-loved member of the Manchester City family and in 2017 received a visit at her home from Vincent Kompany.

Famed for her baking skills and raising money for the Christie hospital, Vera was visited by Kompany who popped over to her house for a cup of tea and a slice of her homemade cake.

And in 2018, aged 102, she led the team out at the Etihad with David Silva and her sister Olga before our 3-0 win over Fulham.

She was one of Manchester City’s most senior Cityzens and a season ticket holder for close to 90 years.

Everyone at Manchester City would like to send love and best wishes to Vera’s family at this difficult time.
