Xpro - The charity for ex-professional footballers in the UK and Ireland.
Football today would not be where it is without the players of yesteryear, footballers constrained by a maximum wage, appearance money, boggy pitches and archaic medical treatment.
Those players, heroes of many today, suffer from debilitating conditions which affect their quality of life.
"Football needs Xpro and I send the charity my very best wishes in hoping they establish a place in the football community. I hope those who hold this game of ours close to their heart will support Xpro in any way they can."
Sir Alex Ferguson
