MANCHESTER, ENGLAND (AP) - To chants of “Fergie sign him up,” David Beckham made a one-off return to the Manchester United team on Tuesday to mark the end of best friend Gary Neville’s career in a friendly against Juventus.
They both received the loudest cheers at Old Trafford, where in one late moment of drama Beckham helped to restrain a fan who invaded the pitch.
Beckham and Neville were also reunited with other members of the so-called “Fergie’s Fledglings,” with Nicky Butt, who is now at Newcastle, Gary Neville’s brother Phil, who now captains Everton, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs.
Neville won the Champions League, eight Premier League titles, three FA Cups, two League Cup titles, the Intercontinental Cup and the Club World Cup along the way.
