Sir Alex Ferguson will manage Manchester United once again in a 20th anniversary repeat of their dramatic 2-1 Champions League final win over Bayern Munich on Camp Nou.
The Manchester United Foundation is to host the game between the ’99 legends and Bayern to celebrate two decades since the club made football history, winning the Premier League, the Champions League and the FA Cup in 1999.
The match is set to be played on 26 May at Old Trafford, which is exactly 20 years since the historic final against the German champions.
It was Sir Alex Fergusons’ first Champions League title, won in a sensational way with two injury time goals to turn the result around in favor of the Red Devils.
I’m really looking forward to what will be a special day at Old Trafford.
It will be a great catch up with some familiar faces and a great opportunity to support the work of Manchester United Foundation.
It was the current Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who scored the winner in the 93rd minute of the game.
Manchester United managing director Richard Arnold, who is organizing the game to raise funds for the Manchester United Foundation said:
The ’99 Treble is one of the most important and historic moments in Manchester United’s story, with a team made up of some true legends of the game.
The final against Bayern Munich is a night etched in the memory of all our fans, and for so many of those names to be returning to Old Trafford to celebrate the anniversary of that momentous achievement is testament to the Manchester United Foundation and the work it does in our community.
It is still the best season in the history of the club and the biggest achievement of and English club, as United is the only team to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League treble.
We look forward to the game and expect to see all Manchester United treble side legends, such as David Beckham, Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Gary Neville, Peter Schmeichel, and many others.
