David James has tipped Manchester City to make legends of themselves by winning the FA Cup final against Stoke on Saturday.The four-time FA Cup winners last won the trophy in 1969 and have not won any silverware since gaining promotion to the Premier League in 2002.
Former City goalkeeper James has played in four FA Cup finals, winning the competition with Portsmouth in 2008.
And James believes the current crop of City players will do themselves and their fans proud at Wembley on Saturday.
“I think Stoke will give Manchester City a very good game but I think Manchester City will be better than Stoke on the day,” James said.
“I was told today that it is Stoke’s first FA Cup final so whoever wins, there will be some sort of history created for either team or for both teams. It will be a very entertaining match.”
“Winning the FA Cup will be Manchester City’s first bit of silverware in 36 years I think.”
“So they have an opportunity to make themselves legends in Manchester. The FA Cup, arguably the best domestic trophy to be won in the world, is a pretty good one to have on your resume.”
