The pupils from Co-op Academy Swinton, Stretford High School and Waterhead Academy in Oldham had earlier been taking part in an inter-school football tournament with the Foundation, and were delighted with the opportunity to ask advice of the Manchester United legends.
Jack, a year 8 pupil from Co-op Academy Swinton, said:
“What can I say; we’ve just been playing with absolute legends! They talked about how they felt the night they won the Treble and when the final whistle blew they just felt brilliant.”
The Neville brothers and Nicky Butt will be back at Old Trafford with their former team-mates on 26 May, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of winning the Treble on that exact date in 1999. The Manchester United Legends will once again be taking on FC Bayern Legends in the celebratory event to raise funds for Manchester United Foundation.
