Last week GiveMeFootball brought you footage of Manchester United legends Dwight Yorke and Andrew Cole putting Sir Alex Ferguson's current crop of striker's, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez to the test in a Telepathic Football challenge.

Following the success of the recent video, which has attracted more than 2.5million views on YouTube, bwin - the Old Trafford club's official online gaming and betting partner - has now released hilarious outtakes of the shoot.

York and Cole formed a prolific partnership during their days together leading the Manchester United front line, and scored 53 goals in the 1998/99 campaign, helping the Red Devils to a Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League treble.

14 years on from that memorable season, the stars of yester-year arrived at United's Carrington training ground armed with blindfolds and a series of exercises in a bid to determine which strike force has the better understanding.

Ferguson's current strikeforce - which also includes Robin van Persie - has plundered 58 goals this season to propel Manchester United 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, leaving the club on the verge of an unprecedented 20th English top-flight crown.

Rooney and Co. also appeared to come out on top against the class of 1999 in bwin's Telepathic Football challenge after the blindfolded England striker scored a spectacular trademark volley to settle the debate once and for all.

Now, you can check out behind-the-scenes footage from the shoot in the video below and watch the banter fly between the Manchester United stars of past and present.
