Man Utd great Beckham cannot wait to reunite with Ferguson at Old Trafford

David Beckham admits he is excited about teaming up with Sir Alex Ferguson in an upcoming charity match for UNICEF.

The former Manchester United star, who had a well-publicised spat with Fergie late in his time with the club, has organised the 'Match For Children' which will see him feature in a Great Britain and Ireland XI to take on a World XI (managed by Carlo Ancelotti) at Old Trafford.

Managing the GB/Ireland team will be Ferguson and Beckham insists he cannot wait to again pay under the world famous manager despite the acrimonious departure back in 2003.

"Bringing the boss back to the dugout means so much to so many people and thankfully we will be doing that," said Beckham.

"I spoke to him personally and he was more than happy to [get involved].

"My relationship with the manager was always great despite what people say, despite the couple of ups and downs which we had.

"For Manchester United fans to see the manager back in the dugout is a dream. So thankfully we are going to be doing that.

"I think that's one of the reasons we've had so much support from fans all over the world wanting to see the manager back and it's a dream."

The match will take place at Old Trafford on November 14.
