Legends of both Manchester United and Real Madrid will go toe-to-toe this summer in a charity match, and the players of the former have warned the Spanish champions not to expect a friendly encounter.

The two sides will meet at Old Trafford on June 2 in order to raise money for the Manchester United Foundation but, in a new advert released by the Red Devils, the Premier League champions lave laid down the gauntlet to their illustrious rivals.

Bryan Robson, Dion Dublin, Lee Sharpe, Clayton Blackmore and Denis Irwin all feature in the new commercial promoting the event and, although they may be a touch softer round the edges these days, provide menacing opposition.

Captain Marvel leads his steely-eyed troops onto a five-a-side pitch to face far younger opposition, making a point that, in the mind an of a Manchester United player, "They Don’t Do Friendlies.”
