Manchester United Will Welcome Sir Alex Ferguson Back To The Dugout For Bayern Munich Clash
Old Trafford will be the stage for an epic re-run of the 1999 Champions League final this summer, 20 years after it happened. The Manchester United Foundation will host the game which will feature stars from that famous final, including the return of Sir Alex Ferguson to the United dugout.
Of course, current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the man who bagged that sensational winner, 20 years ago in Barcelona, to finish a remarkable end to the game. Just minutes before, Teddy Sheringham had drawn United level in injury time, before the famous commentary line: “And Solskjaer has won it!”
Fergie cannot wait to return to Old Trafford for this one, telling the official Manchester United website:
"I'm really looking forward to what will be a special day at Old Trafford,"
"It will be a great catch up with some familiar faces and a great opportunity to support the work of Manchester United Foundation."
Meanwhile, the chairman of the foundation Richard Arnold commented: "The '99 Treble is one of the most important and historic moments in Manchester United's story, with a team made up of some true legends of the game.”
Although Ole has made a fantastic start to life as Manchester United manager, by summer a decision will have been made as to whether the club want to keep him on, or indeed replace him with another man.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been heavily linked with the Old Trafford post and he could potentially ditch Spurs for United in the summer.
