Manchester City have been asked to ‘sort it out’ as they wore an unusual outfit ahead of their win over Young Boys.
Arriving at the Wankdorf Stadium for their 3-1 Champions League win, City boss Pep Guardiola looked dapper for the occasion.
However, when his players also got off the team bus, it was clear that they had chosen not to wear the usual tracksuits.
Instead, it was a cardigan and jeans combo, with the City stars having armbands reading ‘Manchester City’ on their left arms.
Their names and team numbers were also printed on their backs, but Joe Cole wasn’t exactly impressed with their fashion choices.
When asked by TNT Sports presenter Reshmin Chowdhury about his thoughts on the outfits, he replied: “Unacceptable Reshmin.
“I’m not funny am I, the gaffer came out first and he looks like the man with the milk tray, he looks great.
“And he looks around, I don’t care how many triples you guys win, you need to sort out the hardware. It’s horrible, I can’t say anything more.
Cole’s co-pundit Joleon Lescott added: “Debatable, when it doesn’t look good on Jack Grealish, then I’m like, yeah…”
Despite a controversial choice of pre-match kits, City showed style in Switzerland to make it three wins from three in the groups.
Manuel Akanji opened the scoring for the European champions early in the second half from close range.
Young Boys quickly equalized thanks to a sumptuous chip from Meschack Elia, but Erling Haaland put City back in front shortly after.
He smashed his penalty past the goalkeeper to end his run of five games without finding the back of the net in the Champions League.
The Norwegian added a late second to ensure City remained top of Group G with the score at 100 per cent as good as ever.
