Man City v West Ham: Plans for tribute to Foe

Cameroon midfielder who died in 2003 after playing for both sides to be remembered

Marc-Vivien Foe played 73 matches in the Premier League for West Ham and Man City

The weekend's action on Matchweek 35 of the Barclays Premier League kicks off with West Ham United's trip to Manchester City.

The clubs and supporters are set to use the fixture to remember the late Marc-Vivien Foe, who played 73 matches in total for both sides before collapsing during a Confederations Cup match for Cameroon in June 2003 and passing away shortly afterwards.

Foe scored City's last goal at their old Maine Road stadium and during today's match the club will show an image of the player on the electronic boards after 23 minutes and fans of both clubs will be asked to join in a minute's applause to pay tribute to the former No 23.
