The coach of the Barça Legends, José Mari Bakero, has added three more names to the list that was announced just over a month ago. Ronaldinho, Edgar Davids and Simao Sabrosa will all be present on 30 June at Camp Nou for the game against Manchester United Legends which kicks off at 7.00pm CET. This will be the first time that the Brazilian star returns to what was his home between 2003 and 2008 to play in a Barça shirt.
Ronaldinho, Davids and Simao join names such as Angoy, Guzmán, Juan Carlos, Popescu, Nadal, Belletti, Andersson, Déhu, Edmílson, Goikoetxea, Mendieta, Giuly and Julio Salinas in the squad. It is expected in the next few players that more players will be announced from FC Barcelona’s history.
For the Manchester United Legends, players such Blomqvist, Fortune, Poborsky, Berbatov, Ji Sung Park, Silvestre and Dwight Yorke have been confirmed for the game at Camp Nou.
After the success of the game in Beirut, Lebanon in which the blaugranes beat a team of Real Madrid Leyendas 3-2 thanks to two goals from Giuly, one from Simao and three assists from Ronaldinho, this will be the first game for the team at home in Camp Nou. The blaugranes will face Manchester United Legends once again at Old Trafford on 2 September at 3.00pm local time.
