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.
