It's official - Beckham agrees to Old Trafford return

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson and Gary Neville have revealed what Manchester United fans have been hoping and praying for – that David Beckham will return to Old Trafford in a United shirt once more for the Gary Neville testimonial match.

Gary Neville excitedly tweeted that Beckham, brother Phil Neville and Nicky Butt had confirmed their attendance this morning, and Ferguson reiterated the good news, telling reporters: "With David Beckham coming, along with Nicky Butt, Phil Neville, Scholes and Giggs, it will be a fantastic occasion.


"It is great to reunite these players together.

"There is no question they created a magnificent spirit in the place when they first arrived in the team.

"It helps us too because Gary's service to the club deserves a good representation from Manchester United.

"He has been a fantastic servant and I hope he gets the crowd he deserves."

The Nevilles, Beckham and Butt were all members of the famous ‘class of 92’ for Manchester United. Pundit Alen Hansen told Ferguson at the time that he would ‘never win anything with kids’, and after securing numerous trophies, including the 1999 treble, it was fair to say that the Manchester United manager had well and truly proven Hansen wrong.
