British soccer legends Bryan Robson and Steve McMohan, former Manchester United and Liverpool players, respectively, will visit Indonesia on June 24-26, Antara News Agency quoted an executive as saying on Tuesday.

Jorge Lopez Doriga, chief marketing officer of AJE, cola drink producer of Big Cola, said that they will arrive in Indonesia with FA Cup that will be brought directly from England.

He said that the activity would be a present for Jakarta' s 484th anniversary.

He also said that the FA Cup will be exhibited in the Jakarta Fair event for three days.

"Indonesian soccer lovers will have an opportunity to directly touch the FA Cup that was just seized by the Manchester City. They will also meet the legends," he said.

According to Doriga, Robson who is training Thai national team and McMohan who works as commentator in a television station, were selected to come to Indonesia as they are known as close to Asia.

Visit of Robson and McMohan and the arrival of the FA Cup would be a part of 'the FA Cup-Big Cola Asian Tour'.
