Manchester United Foundation has revealed more names set to feature for the club against a team of former Liverpool players in Legends of the north clash.

Jaap Stam, Wes Brown, Louis Saha, Ronny Johnsen and Jesper Blomqvist have all been confirmed, joining Diego Forlan, Patrice Evra, Mikael Silvestre, John O’Shea and Karel Poborsky who were announced earlier this month.

Bryan Robson will be taking charge of the squad alongside assistant manager Andy Cole.

Speaking about the match, Brown lauded the work which the foundation has been doing, especially in schools.

“I’ve been involved with the Foundation for many years now and I love visiting the schools, helping with their projects and just showing my support,” Wes said.

“I know how important their work is, which is why I can’t wait to play again in the Legends of the North match. It’s a big match, against a big rival, so I would encourage all United fans to come along and get behind us, while also helping to raise important funds for the Foundation too.”

The clash will be played on Saturday 21 May.
