The former English midfielder is a Goodwill Ambassador to UNICEF and he is also one of the organizers of the charity match to be held at Old Trafford.
Appearing at a press conference Tuesday afternoon, the English legend, who was “involved in the selection of equipment” said: “Zidane is a friend and possibly the best player I’ve ever played with.”
“I’m excited to be back, this game makes me very proud. After retiring, I never thought I would put the boots,” he said.
The former highly-acclaimed winger shared the dressing room with Zidane at the Santiago Bernabeu from 2003-04 to 2005-06.
