A whole slew of footballing legends graced Old Trafford on Sunday, as Manchester United celebrated Michael Carrick’s testimonial.

Alas, a less-than-world-class performance from the United media team saw the midfielder’s name spelled incorrectly (Michael ‘Carrtick’), with Clarence ‘Seadorf’ also falling foul of some shoddy work.

Although what a cast of legends!

However, the game itself, played in front of 70,000 fans, was a top-class spectacle, with an opening goal from ex-Middlesbrough midfielder Gaizka Mendieta cancelled out by a Nemanja Vidic header.

Robbie Keane then put Harry Redknapp’s All Stars back in front, courtesy of a cheeky lob.

Then on 82 minutes, the man of the moment equalised, with the midfielder firing home a superb daisy-cutter which arrowed into the corner of the net.

The game also saw Sky pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher go head-to-head, with the ex-Liverpool man making the most of an opportunity to take out his United counterpart.

Paul Scholes’ performance was another highlight of the game, with the 42-year-old looking as good as ever, pinging the ball around with ease…

The game would end all square (yet another home draw for United!), with the star-studded event a fitting tribute to a player who won five Premier League titles with the Red Devils as well as lifting the Champions League in 2008.

We’ll excuse the ‘dab’ – it was for his son and it was his big day after all!

Quite a player and, after signing a one-year extension with Jose Mourinho’s United, one with a lot more to offer the club.
