Can you believe he is 68?

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made his return to football by playing in a charity match in memory of Aldo Platini.

The match, which was also put on in an effort to raise money for sick children, took place in Nancy.

Legendary French midfielder and former UEFA president Michel Platini, son of Aldo, was also in attendance at the game which marked the opening of a stadium carrying the name of his father.

Aldo was the first individual to give Wenger a shot at football management at Nancy in 1984 and the Frenchman did not hesitate to take a chance to show his respect for his late friend.

Wenger finally left his post at the Emirates Stadium in the summer after a tenure spanning two decades, 3 EPL title triumphs, 7 FA Cups wins and an unbeaten season in 2003-04.
