Jamie Carragher was among the former professionals to line up behind new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Friday as he and his team-mates prepared for the Soccer Aid match at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Liverpool legend Carragher is set to play his part in the charity match alongside the likes of Sol Campbell and Robbie Fowler.

Mourinho will be watching on from the stands at Old Trafford for his first match at United’s home ground since the Portuguese coach’s appointment as the club’s new manager last week.

And Carragher used his personal Instagram account to share his team photo before Sunday’s game.

Carragher posted the picture above on the photo-sharing app and wrote: “England @socceraid team photo. Fancy our chances on Sunday! Tickets still available #socceraid2016”

Mourinho signed a three-year contract with United last week after the Red Devils opted to sack Louis van Gaal following the club’s fifth placed finish in the Premier League last season.
