The players of the main and woman team of Manchester City brought the Christmas spirit to hundreds of youngsters, visiting four Manchester hospitals.

This afternoon, Pep Guardiola’s players visited the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital with plenty of gifts and special Christmas cards from the players of the club’s academy and made a big surprise to more than 400 children.

City’s defender Vincent Kompany together with Kevin de Bruyne teamed up with manager Guardiola to get to know the children and their families better. After that, the players competed with the kids in a small football competition.

The players supported the hospital by making contributions to the local Health Measurement Kiosk. This institution helps local children and their families to make free heart diagnostics.

Earlier this week, City’s woman team split up and visited three hospitals at once: The Christie, Francis House and Wythenshawe Starlight Unit. The girls handed their gifts to patients and were able to see for themselves the quality of medical care provided to children.
