Which Arsenal legends could play against Real Madrid?

Arsenal and Real Madrid legends are set to play two charity games this year with the first match in Madrid on June 3 at the Santiago Bernabeu while Arsenal hosts the return leg of the friendlies on September 8 at the Emirates Stadium.

The proceeds from the London game will be donated to The Arsenal Foundation, who help to bring training and help to the youngsters in London, while the Spanish event will help Football for Children. Madrid organize an event every year and at the unveiling this weekend, Florentino Pérez announced: “We are here for another year to present a new edition of what has become one of our charitable traditions. A highly emotional event which we celebrate every season. Real Madrid and Arsenal are going to star in the Corazón Classic Match 2018, Fútbol por la infancia, where the proceeds will go to Real Madrid Foundation projects that are aimed at children who need it most, the most vulnerable”.

“And today we welcome another great player from European and world football. For Real Madrid it’s an honour to be able to celebrate this charitable footballing event with the historic Arsenal. A club friend, legendary, with a magnificent record and, above all, a club with values ​​that emanate from the sport”.

“Those of us who are part of football must therefore take on the responsibility of being very aware of their immense potential and the ability to contribute to a better world. For this reason, Real Madrid are very clear that a flag must be flown, which is becoming more and more essential: solidarity. The big football clubs, who are examples for fans around the world, have to be very aware of the most vulnerable, especially boys and girls”.

Robert Pires attended the unveiling and will be playing in the games, while Tomas Rosicky, Freddie Ljungberg, Sol Campbell and Nwanko Kanu, who scored a hat/trick in the last legends charity match against Milan Glorie the year before last, is also set to appear again. Jens Lehmann will likely be between the sticks and Ray Parlour and Nigel Winterburn made an appearance at the last legends match.

For Madrid the ex-players present were Raúl, Guti, Solari, Morientes, Gallego, Baptista, Morales and García Cortes. These events are usually very well attended and the Emirates game is expected to raise around a million pounds for the Foundation. Book your tickets now!

      van Bronckhorst or Silvinho but no Sansom or Cole or Winterburn instead at left back! What a farce! That is the trouble with kids; they are not old enough to remember even fairly recent great LB’s. van Bronckhorst! What a joke ! And not a funny one either. And how the hell could any Gooner leave Adams out of our best defence of all time. I go back 60 years BTW, attending . And the Romford Pele, lovely lad though he is, in front of Brady? You obviously started watching about yesterday!
