Juventus testimonial for Gary Neville

Gary Neville will see his illustrious career at Manchester United honoured with a testimonial against Juventus.

The former England international called time on his career on 2nd February, bringing to an end an 18-year senior career with the Red Devils.

With injuries having taken their toll, the 36-year-old decided that there was little point delaying his retirement any longer.

He stood down having made 602 appearances for United, during which time he helped the club secure eight Premier League titles, three FA Cups, two League Cups and the 1999 UEFA Champions League.

A graduate of the Old Trafford academy system, Neville was also a regular in the England side while at the peak of his powers, earning 85 caps for the Three Lions.

A loyal servant for both club and country, his remarkable career will be given the recognition it deserves when United line-up against Juventus on 24th May.

"I am delighted to be given this game by the club," said Neville.

"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.

"Gary has been a loyal servant of Manchester United and this is a fitting tribute to honour Gary and his career," said Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

"It also gives the fans the opportunity to show their admiration and appreciation for a player who is very much one of them.

"We have had many great games against Juventus in the past and I am sure this will be another memorable night."
