It was first reported back in March that the long-running show had been cancelled and would not be returning next season.
Presenter John “Fenners” Fendley later claimed on social media that no official decision had been made.
However, Sky have since confirmed that Saturday’s show will be the final edition of Soccer AM.
Ahead of the farewell episode, fan-favourite Tubes visited City’s training ground to interview Gundogan.

Taking to Instagram, Tubes shared the images and wrote: “Last ever Soccer AM interview done.”
He accompanied his caption with a series of emojis, which included a crying face.
