Manchester United announce Valencia pre-season friendly at Old Trafford

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United will face Valencia in a pre-season friendly on August 12 at Old Trafford, the club has confirmed.

It will be the first time that United fans get to see Louis van Gaal in the dugout alongside assistant coaches Ryan Giggs and Albert Stuivenberg. Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera could also make their Old Trafford bow against the Spanish side.

Given that the first game of United’s season against Swansea is just four days later, it is a bit of a surprise to see United squeezing in another friendly after what is sure to be a tough pre-season tour of America that sees us play against the likes of Real Madrid and AS Roma.

Tickets are priced from just £10 for U16s (other concessions from £15) and £20 – £40 for adults; 2014/15 season-ticket holders receive a £5 discount. Tickets can be purchased by visiting or calling 0161 868 8000.
