Seems like retirement has leavened Fergie’s soul. Here he is engaging in a Mexican Wave at yesterday’s Legends game between Manchester United and Real Madrid at Old Trafford…

Sir Bobby got stuck in too…

Soccer - Legends Friendly Match - Manchester United Legends v Real Madrid Legends - Old Trafford

Should he really be crowdsurfing at his age?

As for the game itself, over 60,000 people turned out to see Real Madrid beat United 2-1 at Old Trafford, with Fernando Morientes opening the scoring, Van Nistelrooy (who played a half for each side) leveling for United and Ruben de la Red scoring Real’s winner with a superbly nonchalant chip over Raimond van der Gouw…

That’s a lot of talent on that there pitch.

Here’s a little bonus bit of Scholesy popping a cheeky dink over Zinedine Zidane, which we’re also going to throw in free of charge…



You’ll also be glad to learn that the exhibition game helped raise over £800,000 for the Red Heart United charity.

How thoroughly spiffing.
