Manchester United have confirmed former player and legend David Beckham will be returning to Old Trafford once again for the charity game against European rivals Bayern Munich. The Englishman will be reuniting with his former coach Sir Alex Ferguson, as well as former teammates from the famed Class of ’92 for the charity game.
Beckham graduated from United’s youth academy and soon formed an integral part of Ferguson’s squad in the 90s, and eventually the Class of ’92. His 11 year stay at Old Trafford saw him lift the Premier League trophy 7 times, 2 FA Cups and a Champions Leaue trophy. A glorious treble in ’99, including the iconic CL final against Bayern was one of the best spells of his career in Manchester.
Now in an attempt to recreate that CL final of ’99, the former England captain is readying himself for it, as United greats and fellow classmates of ’92 like Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes as well Jesper Blomqvist will be joining him against Bayern’s greats on the other side, in their clash scheduled on May 26.
Ferguson, who coached the side back then, will be at the dugout once again and Beckham appears to be more than ready to lock horns with their European rivals.
“I’m so excited to be going back to Old Trafford in May,” Beckham said.
“1999 was such a massive year for us so recreating that moment is going to be really special.
“To be back together as a squad and to be managed by the boss again is huge. Huge for us and for the fans; I can’t wait,” he added.
