David Beckham is looking forward to an old boys' reunion at Old Trafford, on what he expects to be a "special night" for his former team-mate Gary Neville.

Speaking to MLSsoccer.com, Beckham said he's excited by the prospect of playing in Neville's testimonial against Juventus this Tuesday - and intrigued to see how the man himself performs after several months out of the game.

"Gary's not played or trained for a few months, so that'll be interesting!" smiled Beckham. "It'll also be great to see Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and all the other guys. We have so many great memories, having grown up together at the club and been part of such an historic team. We were lucky, of course, to have a manager like Sir Alex who looked after us and gave us a chance when no-one else probably would have done.

"It's going to be such a special night for Gary and he deserves it."
