Sir Alex Ferguson and David Beckham to be reunited in aid of UNICEF

It has been reported that Sir Alex Ferguson and David Beckham will be reunited at Old Trafford next month to in a charity match in aid of UNICEF.

Beckham was a member of Ferguson’s mighty Manchester United squad for 11 years, but the pair had a bitter feud in 2003 which sent boots flying in the changing rooms, literally.

After the awkward event had taken place, Ferguson sold Beckham to Real Madrid and then criticised the ex-England captain in his autobiography, but the pair are now on better terms.

Beckham had got in touch with Ferguson recently to see if he wanted to get involved in the match designed to raise funds for UNICEF and the former United manager has accepted the offer.

Beckham wore the infamous No 7 shirt for six years.

The 73-year-old will manage a Great Britain and Ireland XI, which will be captained by Beckham, in the game on Saturday, November 14.

It will be the first time Ferguson has returned to the dugout since calling time on his 26-year reign as United manager in 2013.

In the opposing dugout will be Carlo Ancelotti, who managed Beckham at Milan and Paris St Germain. The Italian will manage a Rest of the World XI led by former Real Madrid and France star Zinedine Zidane. The other players involved will be announced over the next month.
