Football fans may just have to give Saturday Night BPL a miss on 14 November as the National Stadium will play host to a star-studded ceremonial match between Liverpool and Manchester United alumni.
The Castlewood Group Battle of the Reds 2015 promises to enthrall English football fans with an 80 minute (yes, not 90) showcase of past players who have represented either clubs.
Fans of pre-Gerard Houllier Liverpool will be able to rekindle the Kop’s heydays, with their starting line up to feature legends such as Steve McManaman and prolific goalscorer Robbie Fowler. The Liverpool Masters troupe will be joined by 2005’s Istanbul heroes Jerzy Dudek, Luis Garcia and Dietmar Hamman.
In the Manchester United end, Lee Sharpe will join the likes of 1999 Champions League winners Andy Cole and Ronny Johnson.
“We don’t like losing to Liverpool and they don’t like losing to us,” Sharpe claims. His comment pretty much sums up the way this friendly exhibition match will be – competitive despite being played out away from their respective home stadiums.
