Manchester City: Fans applaud ‘fantastic’ Bernard Halford tribute

Manchester City: Fans applaud ‘fantastic’ Bernard Halford tribute - Manchester City

Following the passing of lifelong Manchester City president Bernard Halford back in March, with tributes pouring in from every part of the club and beyond, Halford’s funeral was marked with a beautiful graveside gesture from the club – and supporters have flocked to praise the incredible move. 

Halford, who served as club secretary for nearly 40 years from 1972/73, sadly passed away earlier this year due to health complications – with ‘Mr Manchester City’ going on to be remembered fondly by the community and the club as a whole.

A lifelong City supporter, Halford landed his dream role in the 1970s and worked tirelessly at taking the club he loves as far as possible – being a key instigator of Denis Law’s shock cross town move from Man United and the Earth-shattering deal for Robinho in 2008 – practically announcing City’s arrival on the world stage.

Given all of his achievements and his clear love for the Sky Blues, the club pulled out a phenomenal gesture at his funeral – bringing the domestic quadruple trophies plus the women’s team honours and laying them next to his graveside. 

As a result of the incredible tribute, fans have praised the club over their appreciation for a legendary figure – here’s what they had to say.
