Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will return to his seat in the Old Trafford dugout in May as part of a 20th anniversary celebration of the famous treble.

Sunday 26th May will mark exactly 20 years since Teddy Sheringham and current United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer both scored in injury time in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich to clinch the trophy – having already claimed the Premier League and the FA Cup.

A team of Bayern legends will visit Old Trafford to mark the occasion with a friendly match against a corresponding United side that will include members of the 1999 squad, with proceeds from the match going to the Manchester United Foundation.

Sir Alex said: “I’m really looking forward to what will be a special day at Old Trafford.

“It will be great to catch up with some familiar faces and a great opportunity to support the work of Manchester United Foundation.”

Ferguson stepped down as United manager in 2013 after a 27-year reign in which he led the club to 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, and two Champions Leagues.
