Manchester United legend David Beckham set for Old Trafford return

Come on then Manchester United fans, how excited are you!

It has been a really good week for Manchester United fans – first off, they enjoyed a rousing win over struggling Sunderland, then they fought back to win in the Champions League against Wolfsburg.

Things surely couldn't get any better for the Red Devils fans, right? Well, we reckon today's news will make any United fan's – or football fan in general for that matter – year. 

Why? Because United and England legend David Beckham has announced that he will be returning to Old Trafford to captain a British and Ireland side to face a World XI in aid of Unicef. 

Becks took to Instagram to announce the game and which footballing legend he will be facing off against at Old Trafford in November. 

The game, which is set to take place on November 16th, will see Beckham reunite with his former boss and giver of the hairdryer treatment, Sir Alex Ferguson. The Duo will be taking on Fergie's former rival Carlo Ancelotti and Beckham's ex-team-mate, Zinedine Zidane!

What more could you want from a football match, but we do wonder if Fergie will start screaming at Becks and maybe launch another football boot at him.

What do you reckon?
