It's been almost 14 years since former Indomitable Lions midfielder Marc-Vivien Foe died, yet he remains a City player no one will ever forget. Monday, May 1, would have been his 42th birthday.

Marc-Vivien Foe may have only spent a single season on loan at Manchester City but he made a lasting impression on everyone connected to the club. He scored nine goals under Kevin Keegan during the 2002-03 season, City's last at their old Maine Road ground, leaving an indelible mark on the club that remains to this day. He scored the last goal by a City player in their beautiful Moss Side stadium, meaning his place in the club's history will always be secure.

Since his demise, Manchester City have always remembered the player especially on his birthday. In what would have been Foe’s 42nd birthday this year on May 1, Man City on their official twitter handler published a picture of Foe and tweeted;

The No. 23 shirt he wore throughout his one season at the club has been retired forever, quite a statement given the relatively short time he spent as a player in Manchester.

Foe died tragically in the summer of 2003 whilst on international duty for Cameroon, collapsing on the pitch during a game with Colombia in the semi-final of the Confederations Cup in Lyon. With no one around him, he fell to the ground and was unable to be resuscitated despite 45 minutes of attempts by medics to get his heart started again after being taken from the field, according to the BBC.
