Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher and Ryan Giggs turn out for Vincent Kompany testimonial - in pictures

Manchester City Legends played out a 2-2 draw against a Premier League All Stars side in front of 51,602 at Etihad Stadium to raise money for Tackle4MCR

Premier League stars of the past dusted off their boots to take part in the Vincent Kompany testimonial match at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Jamie Carragher and Robin van Persie were just some of the stars on show for the Premier League All Stars side, while former City players such as Nigel de Jong, Stephen Ireland and Craig Bellamy represented the Manchester City legends.

The man of the moment Kompany was sadly ruled out of his own match to reward his 11 years of service at Manchester City, but he received some consolation after the club said it would commission a statue in his honour.

A City Legends team relied on an equaliser from Benjani who, despite only having scored seven goals for the club, helped his team to a 2-2 draw.

The crowd of 51,602 helped to raise a sizeable sum for Tackle4MCR, the initiative set up by Kompany and Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham to tackle homelessness in the city.
