David Beckham will returned to Old Trafford to take part in a UNICEF charity match in November. Beckham will captain a Great Britain and Ireland line-up that will play against a Rest of the World side led by Zinedine Zidane, with Sir Alex and Carlo Ancelotti managing the teams.

Beckham has spoken in praise of Ferguson and claimed that he’s his favourite manager.

He was my favourite manager that I ever played for, he gave me the chance to play for the team that I had supported for my whole life and obviously the success we had there was all down to him as a manager and the players that we played with. So to have Sir Alex Ferguson involved in this is something that I could only dream of and I really wanted to thank him for being part of this. It’s great to have someone who is so respected, he’s one of the best, if not the most decorated manager in football history, and to have him part of something that is so important to so many children around the world is great.
