Gary Neville thinks David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs could still play

Gary Neville was tweeting during today's UNICEF charity match at Old Trafford, and raised an interesting point when discussing Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham.

The former full-back worked up close and personal with the trio during his illustrious career with Manchester United, and was watching on because of his commitments with the England national team as his former team-mates, plus an all-star cast of football legends, put on an exhibition for a packed house at Old Trafford in the name of charity.

Beckham and Scholes rolled back the years when the former laid on a sumptuous cross for the latter to head home after just ten minutes, making it 1-0 on the night.

Manchester United fans took to Twitter to exclaim their delight at the link-up between the two former midfielders - and some went as far as to suggest that Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal should look to bring them back to the club. One in particular, however, wasn't impressed.

He tweeted: "Come on peeps stop tweeting how Scholes, Giggs & Beckham could still do a job in the premier league ... It's embarrassing #fantasy #dreaming"

Neville saw the tweet and took exception to it, replying: "It's not they could!! I watch all teams every week!"

He went on to add: "maybe not top 6", and "do they have to play every game?" when pushed for a response to his claim as more Manchester United fans chimed in.

Scholes of course is unlikely to be welcome at Manchester United after he criticised the club and Van Gaal for their style of football this season, which the Dutch boss took exception to.

Giggs is already on the Dutchman's coaching staff while Beckham, at 40-years-old, is now focussing on launching an MLS franchise in Miami and raising money for children through UNICEF, with whom he has been an ambassador for the last ten years. 

Do you think the Class of 92 could still perform in the Premier League?
