Full United squad could face Beckham

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has told reporters at a press conference in New Jersey he is ready to take on the MLS Stars, which could quite possible include superstar David Beckham.

“It’s my intention to bring all the squad apart from Valencia and Chicharito, who will both be on international duty," Ferguson revealed.

"Hopefully, though, they will join up with us at some part during the tour.”


Manchester United could very well be playing against their hero David Beckham in the meeting with the MLS All Stars on July 27 in New Jersey. And Ferguson is relishing the opportunity to play what he believes will be a top quality American side.

“We’re finding it increasingly more exciting every time we come to the States,” Ferguson said.

“Major League Soccer is now developing into a very competitive league and producing good teams who are making games much more difficult, as we found last year when he played Kansas City Wizards.

“It’s great to see that improvement and, of course, the national team did well at last year's World Cup.

Tickets for the MLS All Stars match, and United's other ties with New England, Seattle Sounders, Chicago Fire and FC Barcelona, are still to be released on the Manchester United website, but interested fans can register to receive details.
