Football is not just a sport but an emotion which flows throughout the veins of its fans. No matter if a player has retired, he continues to be in the hearts of his fans. Moreover, a legend returning to his home club is a different feeling altogether.
May 26th 2019, will mark the comeback of two legends of the footballing world. One being the best football manager the world has ever seen, in Sir Alex Ferguson, and the other being the best number seven Manchester United has ever had, David Beckham.

The two will reunite maybe for a final game at Old Trafford as Manchester United legends team up to face Bayern Munich legends in a charity event.
Beckham, in a recent interview with the club website, expressed his excitement for making a return at Old Trafford and playing under Sir Alex Ferguson in the Treble Reunion game.
'I'm so excited to be going back to Old Trafford in May. 1999 was such a massive year for us so recreating that moment is going to be really special. To be back together as a squad and to be managed by the boss again is huge. Huge for us and for the fans; I can't wait.”March 14, 2019
We fans count ourselves to be extremely lucky that we will get to witness the game-play of Sir Ferguson once again. His tactical prowess will be on full display when they take on the Bayern Veterans.
Sources reveal that the former England captain will be accompanied by his Class of '92 colleagues Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt for this game. Other than this, Phil and Gary Neville will also join forces with Denis Irwin and Jaap Stam at the back, while the goal would be guarded by their iconic goalie, Peter Schmeichel.
This match would be taking place on May 26th, exactly 20 years after United won the Champions League final against Bayern at Camp Nou in 1998/99 season, followed by Premier League and FA Cup titles, marking their best season of all time.
The proceedings collected would be donated as charity to Manchester United Foundation to 'improve confidence, life skills and employability' of the people in Greater Manchester.
Though the match is around two weeks from now, the fans of the Red Devils are already buzzing over the return of DB7 and the rest of the iconic players of the past era.
