Dwight Yorke will wear the Manchester United uniform another time after accepting an invitation to play in the Gary Neville testimonial at Old Trafford on May 24.

Yorke will be with several of his old teammates as they take on Juventus in a repeat of  the 1999 Champions League semi-final.

Neville is hopeful David Beckham will accept an invitation to play in the affair which is being billed the “class of 92” when Neville started playing.

"One of the greatest privileges of being a manager is playing part in the development of young players—watching them grow in confidence and ability," said Reds boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I have been fortunate to work with many exceptional young players, but the class of 92 was unique.

“For so many of them to stay together and succeed at the highest level is a great tribute to their talent and this club’s belief in the power of youth.”

Neville’s 1999 treble-winning team-mates Nicky Butt, Ronny Johnsen, Henning Berg and Yorke are among the players to see action.
