Gary Neville and Dwight Yorke celebrate.

Legends revel in Treble Reunion triumph

Four club legends took time to reflect on Sunday's Treble Reunion match against Bayern Munich and praise the work done by the Manchester United Foundation.

Gary Neville played the full 90 minutes in defence while Jaap Stam also started at the heart of the back four. Dwight Yorke scored United's second goal of the Reds' impressive 5-0 win with a superbly taken volley while Wes Brown made an appearance in the second half, replacing Stam.

GARY NEVILLE: THE WORK THE FOUNDATION DOES IS INCREDIBLE

“It was great. I don't tend to like playing [legends] games, I've not played a lot of them since I retired, but I enjoyed this one because I thought it was for the right cause.

“The work the Foundation do is outstanding and to raise £1.5million, is an amazing amount of money that will go into the communities around Trafford and Manchester and Salford, which is much needed at this time.

”My finishing, to be fair, was disgraceful and I should have scored more than the goals I did in my career. I had lots of games like today where I should have scored goals and I didn't. I don't have regrets about my career at all, but I should have scored more and done more in front of goal when I had opportunities.”

Gary Neville applauds the fans.

DWIGHT YORKE: IT WAS GREAT TO BE REUNITED WITH ANDY COLE

“It was fun. It's good to see everybody. I think that was the main thing, bringing everybody back together. We haven't been able to do that for 20 years. Of course, with the fans and people coming back to show their appreciation of the greatest moment in the club's history, to be part of that, was just absolutely wonderful.

“Obviously, it's unfortunate for Coley at the moment, with his health situation, and we are close. Even to this day, we're still in contact, we go for dinner, we hang out. It's emotional not having him next to me for a long period of time, but it was still good to run out on the pitch with him. It brought back fond memories.”

JAAP STAM: WE WANTED TO WIN EVERY GAME

“You can see not only with myself but I think with everybody on the pitch, everybody in these games 20 years on, you still want to show yourself, you still want to play a nice game and you still want to win a game as well.

”That's what football is about, isn't it? When you go out there, you need to show yourself, you need to give everything and that was one of our biggest things as well back in the days when we played and won the Treble. Never give up and always go for it.

WES BROWN: THE BOYS HAVE LOST NONE OF THEIR SKILL

“It was a great occasion and the crowd were fantastic. It was a good win as well, it was good seeing some of the lads back out there doing their bit, so I enjoyed it.

“You just have to look at Becks [David Beckham], he's just the same, isn't he? But that's why we were a fantastic team. The touches, the way we were spraying the ball about, we're probably not as fit, but that's the way it goes.”
