Manchester United and Real Madrid’s Legends put on a great show for a bumper crowd at Old Trafford as the Red Heart United day was a huge success.
With over £800,000 raised for the Manchester United Foundation and a pre-match concert delighting the fans, there was much to admire on a sunny afternoon at the Theatre of Dreams.
Fernando Morientes had scored for Real Madrid in the first half while Ruud van Nistelrooy switched teams at half-time to score in a red shirt again, as he did so often in his time at Manchester United. Paul Scholes and Zinedine Zidane showed their skills in midfield.
Dwight Yorke was unlucky to hit the bar with the scores on the day level at 1-1. Substitute Ruben de la Red scores a late winner for Real Madrid Legends as they beat Manchester United Legends 2-1 at Old Trafford
The final score on the day was 2-1 to Real Madrid. That victory earned Real the trophy courtesy of a 5-3 aggregate victory.
Meanwhile Sir Alex Ferguson was in the crowd riding a Mexican Wave.
