Former Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, is poised to make a come back at the Club’s dug out when they face Germany’s Bayern Munich in a treble re-union match at Old Trafford. The match will see the stars from the Manchester class of ’99 take on Bayern Munich to celebrate 20 years since Manchester made history by winning a treble in one year; winning the Premier League, the Champions League and the FA Cup.
The anniversary game comes exactly 20 years since that historic win at the Camp Nou (in Spain) when united beat Bayern Munich 2-1 to complete the treble. Current Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, scored the winner in the 93rd minute. No other English club has matched up that treble accolade by the ‘Red Devils’.

Ferguson coached United for 27 years; between 1986 and 2013, when he retired. ‘Fergie’, as he his fondly nick named by the ‘Red Devils’ fans, won 13 Premier League trophies, two Champions League titles and five FA cups with Manchester united.
