Manchester: Sir Alex Ferguson is to return to the Old Trafford dugout for Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick’s testimonial this summer.
Ferguson, who retired in 2013 after 27 years at the United helm, will take charge of one of the teams at the June 4 match. Ferguson’s side will be a Manchester United 2008 XI comprising of players in his EPL and Champions League-winning squad of that year. Their opponents will be a Michael Carrick All-Star XI led by another of the player’s former managers, Harry Redknapp.
Carrick, 35, who has spent the past 11 years at United, said: “Honoured that he’s going to come back and be part of the game. He’s the sole reason I came to the club and I can't thank him enough. He’s been a huge influence on my career, and he’s the man who probably taught me to win.”
