Ex-Brazil and Manchester United midfielder Kleberson is set to appear for an EPL Legends side in a charity game in the Carlisle Grounds in Bray.

The game which will take place against The Wicklow Hospice Select is in aid of the Wicklow Hospice Foundation and takes place on the 15th of September.

Kleberson is among a number of names confirmed for the legends team which includes the likes of Keith Gillespie, Tom Boyd, L’ubomir Moravcik and Clayton Blackmore.

The Brazilian signed for Manchester United in 2003 following a World Cup victory with his country the year previous.

Kleberson spent two years at Old Trafford and only made twenty league appearances over the couple of seasons, however, he is seen by many as a cult hero despite his fleeting time with the Manchester club.
