Manchester United’s Former Manager Alex Ferguson chose photographs of key moments in the club's history for an auction to help Vietnamese children.
The photos were displayed at Old Trafford, Tuesday, as Ferguson, 72, hosted a celebration of the 15th anniversary of the 'United for UNICEF' partnership.
A selection of images autographed by Sir Alex and a number of legendary players such as Paul Scholes, Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham were unveiled.
The pictures are also those he felt best portrayed his glory-laden 27 years with the club.
The images on offer included a shot of Sir Alex holding up the Champions League trophy with Peter Schmeichel surrounded by members of his squad in 1999.
“UNICEF is such a great partner of Manchester United and the work they do is exceptional. They deal with poverty, child abuse and exploitation, so the support they receive from Manchester United is really important,” Ferguson said.
Guests were invited to bid on the prints during an auction that will continue online until October 5.
According to Manchester United, money raised will help fund UNICEF’s work protecting vulnerable children in Vietnam from abuse, neglect and exploitation.
The photography exhibition hosted by Ferguson is part of a series of events meant to support UNICEF, the club said.
