Man Utd To Take On Juventus In A Testimonial For Gary Neville

Manchester United is set to take on Italian giants Juventus in a testimonial for Gary Neville at Old Trafford on Tuesday, May 24.

The veteran full-back who spent 18 years at the club had intended to play a testimonial fixture at the start of this season but was forced to put the game back due to the impossibility of finding a suitable date.

Since then, the 36-year-old has announced his retirement.

“I am delighted to be given this game by the club,” he said.

“It is going to be a very emotional night for me, especially as I pull on that red shirt once more in what will be my last game for the club.

“I intend to savour every moment and I hope the fans can share in my special night.”

Neville has pledged to use the proceeds to support sustainable projects within the community, an issue close to his heart, and also has plans for supporter initiatives home and abroad.
