Fortune in United squad to face Liverpool


Former South African international Quinton Fortune is part of a star-studded Manchester United Legends side that will face Liverpool Legends on May 21.


The 44-year-old played 127 games for the Red Devils, scoring 10 goals, and will link up with many of his former teammates again for the match that aims to raise funds for the Manchester United Foundation, which helps to encourage and educate young people in communities across Greater Manchester.


Fortune will be joined by the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Dwight Yorke, Diego Forlan, Patrice Evra, John O'Shea, Mikael Silvestre, Karel Poborsky, Jaap Stam, Wes Brown, Louis Saha, Ronny Johnsen and Jesper Blomqvist.


United legend Bryan Robson, who will manage the side, said: “It’s always exciting playing against Liverpool; even in legends games that rivalry is still there.”


Fortune played 47 times for Bafana Bafana, and was also part of the AmaGlugGlug side that competed at the 2000 Olympics, where they famously beat a Brazil side featuring Ronaldinho.
