Strikers announced for Treble Reunion
The Manchester United Legends squad is now complete as the strikers are confirmed for the Treble Reunion match to take place at Old Trafford on 26 May 2019.
The defenders and midfielders for the all-star match have already been confirmed, with Peter Schmeichel back in goal,
Jaap Stam, Denis Irwin and the Neville brothers, Gary and Phil, in defence, and fellow Class of '92 stars David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes making up the midfield.
Raimond van der Gouw, Ronny Johnsen, Henning Berg, Wes Brown, David May, Jesper Blomqvist and Jonathan Greening complete the squad.
Manager Solskjaer is excited to be taking to the pitch again, after scoring the Treble-winning goal and emerging from the Nou Camp a hero in 1999:
“I am delighted to be part of this very special reunion. Over the coming weeks, I will be training hard to make sure the boss has me in the starting XI this time around!
”In all seriousness, it will be a great match and a chance to catch up with some old team-mates, whilst raising vital funds for our Foundation.
“It's nice to be asked to come back. I think it¹s a great occasion and a great idea to get the game going. The fact we are going to get a lot of money for the Foundation, for the children of Manchester, I'm delighted to be part of it.”
Fans can also look forward to welcoming Sir Alex Ferguson back to the Old Trafford dug-out, as he and his team celebrate lifting the FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League trophies during that iconic season.
Manchester United and Bayern Munich Legends will now meet once again for the anniversary match, with funds raised going towards Manchester United Foundation's work with young people across Greater Manchester.
