In a game that was notable more for the coming together of two Premiership clubs who enjoyed the privilege of having the in spirational presence of Marc Vivien Foe in their ranks, Man City coasted home with two sublime strikes from Sergio Aguero and Yay Toure before managing to concede an embarrassing consolation to the determined but outplayed Bubbles boys.
The Cameroonian international joined the Hammers in 1999 for a season that saw them enjoy a UEFA adventure under then boss Sir Harry Rednapp. He was captured back to France for a 6 Million fee in 2000 but subsequently enjoyed a spell at Man City during which he collapsed whilst on International duty and died due to Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. A likelable and hugely talented giant of a man, he is remembered fondly. Rest in Peace big man.
