Former Manchester United favorite David Beckham will return to Old Trafford and wear United colors again as he is a part of Gary Neville's testimonial match.
Manchester United will play Juventus in a rematch of the 1999 European Cup semifinal and along with Beckham, the rest of United's 'Class of 92' including Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes will be adorned in Manchester United colors.
Beckham and Neville are best mates and have been so ever since they came through the United youth academy together in the 90s. Beckham admitted he was having goose bumps at the thought of playing for United again, and went on to praise his friend, Gary.
He told MLSsoccer.com, Putting a United shirt on again never gets old. I get goose bumps every time I think about stepping out at Old Trafford again, as does walking out on the pitch. To be able to do that for Gary and his family means it is going to be an emotional night.''
I played with him for so many years,'' Beckham went on.We were room-mates, he was best man at my wedding and he is one of my best friends. I am looking forward to seeing him play. After a few months of not playing and training, that will be interesting.''
Gary is still so dedicated. It is the reason why he has achieved so much in his career and why United fans love him. He is a great home-grown talent which United are famous for producing. He always gave me a lot of advice over the years - the majority of which was good. He is such a talent and hard worker. He really deserves this night.''
