Brazilian star Juninho is to make a final appearance for Middlesbrough in their pre-season friendly clash with PSV Eindhoven.

The 38-year-old, who represented the club in three separate spells and was a member of the team which lifted the Carling Cup in 2004, will play some part in the game next Friday evening.

Manager Tony Mowbray said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for our fans to pay tribute to one of the most famous players in our history."

He added: "They never had the chance to give Juninho a proper send-off when he left for the last time, and I know much how they will welcome the chance to show their appreciation for everything he did for the club.

"The PSV game is an important friendly for us and one we are taking very seriously, and Juninho will play at some stage."
