Beckham, who left the club for Real Madrid in 2003, can’t wait to wear our shirt again.
“Putting a United shirt on again never gets old,” said Beckham. “I get goose bumps every time I think about stepping out at Old Trafford again, as does walking out on the pitch. To be able to do that for Gary and his family means it is going to be an emotional night. I played with him for so many years. We were room-mates, he was best man at my wedding and he is one of my best friends. I am looking forward to seeing him play. After a few months of not playing and training, that will be interesting!”
Beckham believes after Neville’s commitment and hard work, he is deserving of a night dedicated to him.
“Gary is still so dedicated,” said Beckham. “It is the reason why he has achieved so much in his career and why United fans love him. He is such a talent and hard worker. He really deserves this night.”
