Former football stars from Manchester United and Liverpool will play friendly games against veteran Vietnamese footballers during the 2009 Masters Vietnam Football Tournament to take place at My Dinh National Stadium on November 19-20.
The news was announced by the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) and the DC Media Joint Stock Company (DCM) at a press briefing in Hanoi on October 19.
The tourney offers a great chance for Vietnamese football fans to meet former Premier League stars such as Andy Cole, Andrei Kanchelskis and Vivian Anderson of Manchester United FC, and Mark Walters, Dominic Matteo and John Barners of Liverpool FC.
Event organisers will invite Dermott Gallagher and John Underhill who used to referee many Premier League matches to control the Masters Vietnam tourney. Dermott Gallagher refereed the FA Cup final between Manchester United FC and Liverpool FC at Wembley Stadium in 1996.
