David Beckham has just made one whopper of an announcement that will no doubt send his fans into hysteria.
The ex England captain might have hung up his football boots years ago, but he will be making his grand return to Old Trafford for a very special cause next month.
Prepare for a lot of swooning as he slips back into that Manchester United kit once again, as David will return to the pitch to play in a UNICEF charity match on 14th November. Ooh!
As we know, Mr Beckham is a brand ambassador for the charity, and the special match (featuring one very famous former player) is happening to raise awareness and money for children in need.
‘I want a world where children can grow up safe from violence, free from poverty and protected from preventable diseases’, David said in a statement.
‘This match gives me the perfect opportunity to raise awareness and vital funds to help reach the children who need it most. I am delighted that my friend Zizou (Zidane) will join me in leading two teams, full of our friends and team mates, at the best stadium in the world.’
Controversially, Becks will be managed by Sir Alex Ferguson for the game – the man he famously fell out with in 2003 after the Scot accidentally kicked a boot at his head. Eesh!
David will play captain for the Great Britain and Ireland XI team as they take on a Rest of the World XI, led by Zinedine Zidane and managed by Carlo Ancelotti.
And while football fans will no doubt be thrilled, wife Victoria is equally as excited and proud about having her hubby back on the pitch.
‘Proud of @davidbeckham putting his boots back on again at Old Trafford for the fantastic work of @unicef Captaining the Great Britain team, managed by Sir Alex Ferguson against a Rest of the World side’, she posted on Instagram once the news broke.
Tickets are now available on the Manchester United website and are priced from £20 for adults and £10 for children.
