Manchester United have announced legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson is set to return to the Old Trafford dugout later this year.
Ferguson is set to take charge of the Manchester United side in Michael Carrick’s testimonial which is set to be held on June 4, while Harry Redknapp is set to take charge of the Michael Carrick All Stars XI.

The match is set to help raise funds for Carrick’s new foundation the Michael Carrick Foundation, which aims “to create opportunities for children to feel safe, valued and inspired to achieve”, while also raising funds for the Manchester United Foundation.
During his time in the Old Trafford hotseat, a career which began in 1986 and ended in 2013, Ferguson captured 38 trophies, which included 13 Premier League crowns.

The 13th league title of his career coincided with United’s 20th league title overall.
Carrick returned to the Manchester United line-up on the weekend, as they overcame a tricky away trip to Middlesbrough with a 3-1 victory.
