Manchester City legend Kevin De Bruyne has celebrated the club’s historic treble with custom made platinum iPhones for all the players.
On the eve of the new Premiership season the Man City Captain handed out 26 specially commissioned ultra luxurious phones marking the club’s historic win.
The iPhones worth £5,000 each were made by world leading custom mobile designers iDesign Gold and were gifted to the players, Pep Guardiola and Sheik Mansour at a surprise get together on Thursday ahead of their Premiership opener against Burnley.
The gifts were inspired by football GOAT Lionel Messi after he gifted 24-carat gold iPhones worth £175,000 to the 35 strong Argentina World Cup winning squad and staff earlier this year.
The 2022/23 season was the best in Manchester City’s 129-year history as Pep Guardiola’s side achieved football immortality by winning the Premier League, the Champions League and the FA Cup.
It was a truly historic achievement and to celebrate the club captain and midfield ace Kevin De Bruyne arranged for all the players to receive a solid gold iPhone 14 with the player’s name and club logo engraved onto the case. A unique phone marking an incredible footballing achievement.
Following captain Kevin De Bruyne’s initiative Manchester City are in discussions to form a partnership with the club to create unique, bespoke iPhones.
Kevin De Bruyne said: “I’ve been working with IDG for a few years and I really admire their limited edition phones, they’re like pieces of art!”
Ben Lyons, iDesign Gold CEO and creative director, said: “Our vision is to empower individuals to embrace their individuality, express their unique style and make a bold statement in the digital world which is why we were honoured to work with Kevin.
