The Manchester United icon will be joined by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, Anfield great Sir Kenny Dalglish and England boss Gareth Southgate, with Kelly Cates on hosting duties.

This week's event will support The Alzheimer's Society's 'Sport United Against Dementia' and the LMA's 'In The Game' charity.

Sir Alex Ferguson with Sir Bobby Charlton.

Nobby Stiles suffered from dementia before sadly passing away last year and fellow Old Trafford legend Sir Bobby Charlton has also been diagnosed with the illness.

“It's littered right throughout the football spectrum,” Sir Alex told the Daily Mail recently. “Jeff Astle, Martin Peters, Ray Wilson.

“And United have had a serious blow themselves with Nobby and Bill Foulkes.

”It's been very sad. Bobby's not been well for a while. The gates have been opened by Nobby's passing and Bobby's diagnosis. They are huge figures, it has to create an awareness.

“I don't know what the Professional Footballers' Association is doing but the League Managers' Association is concerned and [their chief-executive] Richard Bevan has been fantastic.

“We have to see what we can do to help,” he insisted. “Football has a duty to look at the situation. People like myself owe it to the game to see if there's something we can do.“

Sir Alex will be joined by Sir Kenny Dalglish, Jurgen Klopp and Gareth Southgate.

The online event takes place between 19:00 GMT and 20:30 GMT on Friday 15 January, with tickets priced at £25 each. 

Ticket-holders will receive an exclusive password to log on to the discussion and even be invited to pose questions as the guests will discuss key issues within the game and, no doubt, look ahead to the big match between Liverpool and United at the weekend.
