The 26-year-old Bosnian wore the shirts during games against Stoke City and Arsenal earlier in the season. He scored on both occasions.

Džeko has listed the items himself personally, posting the following message on the eBay page:

Dear fans and everybody,

In order to help those in need, I decided to start selling sports memorabilia that has a special meaning for me, and all the money I raise from this and future auctions will go to charity. This time my family, friends and I decided to donate proceeds to Home for children without parental care Bjelave in my hometown Sarajevo.

Items I'm selling are two signed Manchester City Sky Blue Umbro T-shirts (size L) with custom messages: "Happy New Year" – worn on 1 January 2013 against Stoke City, and the other, in my native, Bosnian language – "Za moje mahalce" (For my mates) – worn on 13 January 2013 against Arsenal.

Both T-shirts were part of my goal celebration, so good luck bidding and don't forget it's for the noble cause.

Yours truly,

Edin Džeko


Bidding on the items is currently at $10,000 with the auction running until February 23rd.
