Manchester City 2008/09 third - Tal Ben Haim #26 (English Premier League)

Match worn Manchester City 2008/09 third shirt, worn and signed by Israeli center back Tal Ben Haim #26 in the first match of the season in a 4-2 away defeat against Aston Villa at Villa Park on August 17, 2008. Signed shortly before the takeover by the Sheikh, Ben Haim's stint at the club in the 2008/09 season was largely unsuccessful as he made a total of 15 appearances in the first half of the season before being loaned out to Sunderland in the second half. This is currently the only le coq sportif shirt I own.
