Manchester United have confirmed that Sir Alex Ferguson will return to the dugout for a special reunion match to mark the 20th anniversary of the club’s treble-winning campaign.
A United Legends side – managed by their legendary Scotsman – will play Bayern Munich Legends at Old Trafford on May 26 in a repeat of their famous 2-1 Champions League final comeback win that sealed their third major trophy of the 1998-99 season.
The funds raised will go towards charity via the Manchester United Foundation.
Ferguson left United at the end of the 2012-13 season, winning the Premier League – a feat the club have failed to achieve since his retirement.
The Red Devils remain the only English side to achieve a Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League treble, and did so under the Scotsman’s guidance.
The treble-winning side lost just three times in the 1998-99 Premier League – away to Arsenal and Sheffield Wednesday and at home to Middlesborough – and were unbeaten after Boxing Day en route to beating the Gunners to the title by one point.
