Manchester United striker Michael Owen knows their clash with the MLS All-Stars will be special for David Beckham.

Owen knows the entire evening will mean more to LA Galaxy star Beckham given the decade he spent with the Red Devils before joining Real Madrid in 2003.

"We are all delighted he is playing," said Owen.

"It won't be the first time he has played against the lads but the club holds a special affection for him.

"He is a top player and it is nice to meet up again."
