Who's confirmed as playing?
This will be a good game. Gary Neville to score!
Beckham, Butt, Giggs and Scholes. That is all I know at the moment.
Manchester United Official Web Site - Juventus send strong squad for Gary Neville testimonial
Juventus have confirmed they’ll send a strong squad for Gary Neville’s testimonial on Tuesday night, including World Cup winners Alessandro Del Piero, Gianluigi Buffon and Luca Toni.
Other stars like Marco Motta, Giorgio Chiellini, Hasan Salihamidzic, Alberto Aquilani and Milos Krasic will also travel to Manchester.
The Italian club ended the Serie A season in seventh place and were specially selected by Gary Neville to play in his testimonial given the shared history of success between the two sides.
The game kicks off at Old Trafford at 19:30 BST and will also feature United stars past and present, including David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs. Tickets are still available.
Juventus travelling squad: Buffon, Motta, Chiellini, Melo, Salihamidzic, Marchisio, Del Piero, Manninger, Aquilani, Barzagli, Traore, Bonucci, Toni, Pepe, Martinez, Krasic, De Ceglie, Storari, Matri, Giandonato, Boniperti, Sorensen
Krasic is gonna own.
I thought we should have gone for him last summer.
Really looking forward to seeing Del Piero in the flesh, one of my alltime favourite non United players.
Wouldn't it be great if Gigi fell in love with Old Trafford!!
Heading over for this, ash cloud pending. Can't wait.
Any tickets left? I could make an exception for Gary's testimonial (I realise this isn't the right section, but there isn't a thread for it elsewhere)
There is still tickets left to buy for the game. Go onto the official website and buy them from there. I think the price is £25 per ticket.
Cheers. Reckon I might just pop down on the day and see what the crack is. Would love to see Del Piero in action. Oh, and Gary, of course...
I will be sitting quite close to the bench for the first time. Not sure how i should behave around SAF, is there an unwritten rule on what people should do or say? Obviously it would be nice to shake Fergie's hand but should i ask for photo? An autograph? Or should i just sit back and enjoy the fact i am within touching distance of the great man and not risk the hair dryer treatment for disturbing his concentration? He always seems quite cheerful at the start of games or after we've won.
What the ****? Motta is possibly, no, not possibly, Motta is the worst right back in Italy, and they call him a star? Freckin star?
Keep an eye on Sorensen, (if he plays) this lad is very talented, a centreback, who is played out of position as a right back, but he's damn good. Eto'o didn't have a sniff against him.
I'm disappointed, I thought Juve's legends were going to play. Would've been sexual to see Neville, Giggs, Scholes, Cole versus Nedved, Davids, Del Piero and Zidane. :frown:
I thought even Fletcher is getting a run in this match ..
eric the king and schmeichel is a rumour
Since when did Toni play for Juve? I've missed that one.
Proud to play against ManUtnd
hi i'm juventus fan we're very very proud to play against United for Neville's match.
I've seen Man Utd play live one time when yorke and cole scores in turin....what a team!!
i love ryan giggs and i hope one day to come to old trafford!!!!
Since January, I think. Didn't the get rid of Amauri and replace him with Toni?
