THERE was never any doubt.

But Stuart Pearce showed his true colours at the Manchester City v Burton game on Wednesday night.

The former City manager was at the Etihad but was wearing a Warrington Wolves jacket for the match.

Blues fan Rick Bowen got a picture of himself and the former England star as City demolished the League One side 9-0 in the Carabao Cup semi-final.

"I was surprised to see him on the tram on the way home from the game, I had to double check it was him," said Rick.

He was fine with me but when asked if he enjoyed the game he said no. I asked why and he said because his mate manages Burton. Very friendly though."

Rick added: "I’m from Warrington but I don’t really follow rugby, just City. Love to go to a Wire game though."

Pearce, known as Psycho, has been following Warrington for years after meeting former coach Tony Smith on a coaching course.

He gets to games as often as he can and can regularly be seen at The Halliwell Jones during the Super League season.
