Have a good testimonial, Gary Neville!
Hope it’s better than this one…
Tonight is Gary Neville’s testimonial. Him and all his best mates like Nicky Butt and David Beckham will be running around Old Trafford against Juventus hoping not to pull anything or injure anyone who might be playing against Barcelona on Saturday.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, here’s a video of Johan Cruyff’s testimonial for Ajax against Bayern Munich. Apparently, Bayern hated Cruyff – it would be like Neville inviting Liverpool to be the opponents tonight – and they played as if it was the European cup final.
The German side scraped through 8-0, but we love this video for the clips of Cruyff relaxing with a cigarette (the first is around 1.55), looking more like Serge Gainsbourg than one of the greatest footballers ever.
