Manchester United To Play Juventus In Gary Neville Testimonial Match

Former Manchester United right back Gary Neville, who retired from club football in February, is to take the pitch wearing the famous red shirt once again as Juventus come to England for his testimonial match. Neville, who was part of the Manchester United side which won the Champions League in 1999 - securing a thrilling comeback in Turin in the semi-finals - made 602 appearances for his club over a nineteen year career which saw him win major honours on no less than fourteen occasions.

As is tradition when someone of his standing leaves the game, the club will host a friendly match in his honour at Old Trafford. Neville's testimonial will be held on May 24th, and the former defender is looking forward to one last performance under the lights:

I am delighted to be given this game by the club. It is going to be a very emotional night, especially as I pull on that red shirt once more.

I intend to savour every moment and I hope the fans can share in my special night.
