Becks goosebumps over Neville game.

Byline: DAVID ANDERSON

DAVID BECKHAM admits he gets "goosebumps" at the thought of pulling on a Manchester United jersey to play at Old Trafford.

Becks (right) will don the famous red shirt tonight when reunited with old United pals for Gary Neville's testimonial against Juventus. "Putting a United shirt on again never gets old for me," said the LA Galaxy star. "I get goosebumps every time I think about stepping out at Old Trafford. To be able to do that for Gary and his family means it is going to be an emotional night.

"I played with him for so many years. We were room-mates, he was best man at my wedding and he is one of my best friends."

Becks takes his place at the Theatre of Dreams alongside the likes of Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs - and says Neville (left) deserves his big night because of his long years of total devotion to United.

"Gary is still so dedicated," Beckham said. "It's why he has achieved so much in his career. He really deserves this night."
