The Munich testimonial game between Manchester United and an Eric Cantona XI
has been rescheduled for Tuesday, August 18 20.00. Tickets for the match at Old
Trafford went on sale again this morning. The benefit match, in aid of the
survivors and victims' families of the 1958 air crash, had originally been
planned for February, but was postponed because United had to play an FA Cup
replay. United had tried to re-arrange the game for before the start of the
new season, but were thwarted by their Champions' League commitments.

1. Bruce poised to cut into management with Blades

Bruce is understood to be United's top choice from a three-man shortlist including Nigel Pearson and Adrian Heath. Now, the First Division club will work to thrash out a deal with the 37-year-old Birmingham skipper before they make him a formal offer. Bruce is ready to accept a substantial pay cut on the one-year extension he has agreed at St Andrews in order to take his first job in management. But the former Manchester United defender can cushion his financial losses by playing on for one more season. The plan is for him to take on the demanding dual role of player-manager initially, but United are also likely to install a senior figure in an advisory role. Torquay United duo Kevin Hodges and Steve McCall have emerged as the favourites to take over at Third Division Plymouth Argyle, who yesterday sacked manager Mick Jones. Jones, 51, was in charge last season after taking over from Neil Warnock as Plymouth spiralled out of the Second Division. Plymouth chief executive Roger Matthews said the decision to sack Jones was 'regrettable' but in the best interests of the club. He added: 'Having considered the position and performance of the team over the whole of last season it was felt that a change was necessary.' Hodges made a record 530 appearances for Plymouth before moving to Torquay, while McCall enjoyed a spell as a player-manager at Home Park. The pair led Torquay to the Third Division play-off finals.
