The game kicks off at 4.00pm CET and can be seen in Spain

Barça Legends will be back in action this Saturday at one of the most famous football grounds in the world, Old Trafford in Manchester, to take on Manchester United Legends. The game is the second between the two teams following on from Manchester United’s 3-1 win at Camp Nou on 30 June.

The game kicks off at 4.00pm CET and can be seen in Spain on Barça TV and Barça Video, FC Barcelona’s video content platform.

Squad

It will be the debut for new Barça Legends coach Albert ‘Chapi’ Ferrer, he replaces José Mari Bakero, and he has selected an 18 man squad for Saturday’s game. They are: Patrick Kluivert, Éric Abidal, Xavi Guzmán, Jesús Angoy, Gaizka Mendietta, Juliano Belletti, Andoni Goicoetxea, Frédéric Déhu, Luis García, Sánchez Jara, Juan Carlos Rodríguez, Simao Sabrosa, José Edmílson and Edgar Davids. In addition, Juan Carlos Moreno, Sergi Barjuan, Aloisio Pires and Jofre Mateu will debut and it will be Chapi Ferrer’s first game as coach after he replaced José Mari Bakero on the bench.

A match of solidarity

The match will be particularly emotional as it pays tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks that the two cities have suffered recently. That is why the Barça players won’t have their names on the backs of their shirts, just ‘Barcelona,’ as the first team had against Betis recently. By the same token, United’s legends will only have ‘Manchester’ on theirs. There will also be a minute’s silence before kick-off and every player will wear a black armband.

All proceeds will go towards the construction of the Hospital Sant Joan de Deu, a pioneering project in which the FC Barcelona Foundation, the Leo Messi Foundation and the IESE Business School are involved.

What are the Barça Legends?

FC Barcelona values the players who have worn the shirt of the Club. The Legends project aims to contribute to the globalisation of the Barça brand and its values ​​through former players. This initiative will see several games played and the organisation of parallel events in different parts of the world.
