Manchester United legends to return to Old Trafford for UNICEF

A whole host of Manchester United legends including Ryan Giggs, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Paul Scholes will grace the Old Trafford pitch once again next month for the ‘Match for Children’ in aid of UNICEF.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson, helped by captain David Beckham, will lead a Great Britain and Ireland team against Zinedine Zidane’s Rest of the World XI, coached by Carlo Ancelotti.

The Old Trafford faithful can also look forward to seeing the likes of Fabio Cannavaro, Patrick Vieira, Cafu, Luis Figo and Ronaldinho during the game.

It promises to be a fantastic occasion and one that will benefit UNICEF, who provide lifesaving care to some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
