Former United players Dwight Yorke, Andrew Cole, Denis Irwin, Lee Sharpe, Dion Dublin, Quinton Fortune, Edwin van der Sar, Jaap Stam, Teddy Sheringham and Nicky Butt are also expected to feature.

The squads have been announced by the Manchester United Foundation, who are raising money for disadvantaged young people under their Red Heart United banner.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.
