Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wound back the years as the Manchester United manager came off the bench to score for Sir Alex Ferguson's side against Bayern Munich in the Treble Reunion match.

After a hard season - with United finishing sixth in the Premier League - Sunday's match brought a feel-good factor back to Old Trafford.

Uncompromising defender Jaap Stam said he and his teammates wanted to show that they still have the talents that made them Old Trafford darlings.

"You want to have a squad that is competitive with each other as well, because everyone needs to push each other and basically get the maximum in achieving something".

Solskjaer is already planning ahead for next year's summer transfer window just weeks into his first with United and has informed executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward of the players he wants to move on before the 2020-21 campaign.

"That's what football is about, isn't it?"

Fans young and old descended on Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon to see some of the club's greatest players 20 years to the day since sealing Champions League glory in such spectacular fashion at the Nou Camp.

Police said initial investigations showed Ms McLeod was overtaking a truck when she slammed head-on into an oncoming vehicle. The driver of the truck, a 47-year-old man, was taken to Kingaroy Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

It was the first time Ferguson, 77, had managed a United team since his retirement in 2013.

The match took place in order to raise money for the Manchester United foundation, more information on which can be found here.

Former United stars like Peter Schmeichel, Gary Neville, Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke, Teddy Sheringham and David Beckham were all in the playing XI for today's friendly.

Bayern Munich's Mario Basler gave them the lead back of a sixth-minute free-kick on the night as United's hopes of adding the Champions League trophy to their domestic double of the Premier League and FA Cup loomed in the darkness. David Beckham was one of the stars, who returned to the spotlight once again. "We could do with them two at the back!"

United let in 54 league goals last season, the most the club have conceded in the EPL era.

"They were fantastic the whole season, the '99 season, those two were unbelievable".
