  • Sir Alex Ferguson Returns To Coach Man United For Carrick Testimonial

Britain's most decorated-ever manager will take charge of United's 2008 XI against a Michael Carrick All Star XI for the midfielder's testimonial on June 4th.

It will be a reunion of Ferguson's 2008 Champions League and Premier League winning the United side, as the former teammates will line up against a Michael Carrick All-Star XI, which will be managed by former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Ryan Giggs, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Park Ji-Sung, Gary Neville, Wayne Rooney and Edwin Van der Sar were the other big names in the Manchester United's 2008 squad. No [I don't miss managing].

"I'm delighted Michael is getting a testimonial", Ferguson told MUTV. It tells you Manchester United are probably the only club in England that can do that. I think it's much better having that than you choose a team, having to travel and you don't know whether a full squad is going to be there.

Park was rarely considered more than a fringe player during his seven-year stay at Old Trafford, but Ferguson regularly called upon him in important, season-defining matches. "If Michael's got guarantees these great players will appear, it will be fantastic crowd as it's a real attraction".

Carrick, the midfield maestro, who is yet to be offered a contract extension this season, was an integral part of Ferguson's team alongside legendary Paul Scholes. "We don't have players here one minute and gone the next".

The 75-year-old, who won an incredible 38 trophies during his time in charge at Old Trafford, retired from management back in 2013 having delivered the club's 20th top-flight title.
