Legendary Man City keeper Trautmann dies

Former Manchester City and Germany keeper Bert Trautmann has died at the age of 89, reports BBC Sport. Trautmann is best remembered for playing the final 17 minutes of City's 1956 FA Cup final win, when they beat Birmingham City, with a broken neck.

He played more than 500 times for City between 1949-64, having first arrived in England as a prisoner of war.

Trautmann, who had survived two heart attacks this year, passed away near Valencia in Spain on Friday.
