Former Coventry City players have hit out this week after it was revealed they weren’t invited to the club’s upcoming big match at Wembley.
The team who won the FA Cup on the same pitch in 1987 have not been given the right to attend, despite their significance in the club’s history.
The Checkatrade Trophy final on Sunday will be the club’s first return to Wembley since then.
Former player Micky Gynn told the BBC: “Not being invited by the football club is an absolute disgrace…there’s no excuse for it.”
Ex-players who are still on the club’s payroll, like Steve Ogrizovic who will lead the team out on Sunday, can attend.
Otherwise, former players were required to purchase their own tickets if they wanted to go.
