Manchester United and Barcelona legends to commemorate terror attacks

Manchester United Legends and their Barcelona counterparts will commemorate the recent terror attacks in both cities when they meet at Old Trafford this weekend.

Players will wear black armbands and wear shirts with the name of their respective cities on the back – as Barcelona’s first team did against Real Betis earlier this month – on Saturday as a mark of respect for the victims of the attacks in Manchester in May and in Barcelona and Cambrils earlier this month.

 A minute’s silence will be held with a message of support being displayed on the digital boards surrounding the pitch.

“However, as two of the most iconic teams in world sport, we can use the power of football to bring people together.

“We must unite to show our strength, rally around our communities and stand up together against all forms of terrorism.”

United’s squad will include Edwin van der Sar, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Ji-sung Park and Wes Brownwhile Barcelona will field the likes of Edgar Davids, Patrick Kluivert, Gaizka Mendieta and Éric Abidal.
