Why is your nan walking out with David Silva at the Etihad?

This is the moment of the season so far

Has anyone lost their nan?

Have a quick look.

If she’s missing then I recommend you pop down the Etihad because she’s just walked out at the Etihad holding David Silva’s hand.

This legend’s name is Vera Cohen.

She is 102-years-old β€” not even kidding.

Vera has been a season ticket holder at Man City for 88 years.

88 years… did season tickets even exist back then? Did football exist?

It gets better, Vera’s younger sister Olga (flair names, right?) joined her sibling on mascot duty.

She’s a whipper-snapper at 98-years-old β€” bloody students.

The Cohen sisters have instantly become our favourite humans who are even remotely involved in football.

Fair play to City for honouring some of their most dedicated fans.

Where can I buy a ‘Vera 102’ Man City shirt?
