A HOST of star-studded former Manchester United stars have signed up to play in Vincent Kompany's testimonial…. along with Emile Heskey and Cesc Fabregas.
Man City have arranged one final match for the club legend who left this summer following 11-stellar years at the Etihad.
The game, that takes place on September 11, will have a derby day feel after 10 former Red Devils joined ranks.
Managed by Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, he will have Edwin van der Sar between the sticks while the Neville brothers will occupy the full-back roles.
At centre-back John O'Shea will reunite with Wes Brown and Martinez will have a wealth of talent available to him in midfield.
Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Michael Carrick and Ryan Giggs are another United quartet who have signed up while ex Arsenal and Chelsea ace Cesc Fabregas and former Real Madrid hero Rafael van der Vaart will also be involved.
The attackers include former United and Arsenal striker Robin van Persie.
There is also a place in the side for Emile Heskey, the former England and Liverpool striker.
