Boogaard, McGlinchey in A-League All-Stars

Adelaide United's A-League All-Star Nigel Boogaard doesn't mind whose Manchester United shirt he gets - even if it's the bloke who carries their bags.

Boogaard is among the latest additions to the All-Stars squad to play the Red Devils in Sydney on July 20.

Central Coast's championship-winning duo Michael McGlinchey and Joshua Rose, and Melbourne Heart's David Williams, were also announced on Thursday as joining the squad.

Adelaide's Boogaard faces the prospect of marking Wayne Rooney or Robin van Persie - but is unfussed whose Manchester shirt he gets.

"I would take anyone's, to be honest, even if the kit man was giving his away," Boogaard told reporters on Thursday.

"I'm just excited about the challenge.

"They are some big idols of mine, and obviously a lot of kids around the world.

"Although they are world class players, they are just players. And at the end of the day you have to treat them like anyone else.

"Obviously give a little bit more respect than other players, but they're just another number out there - that is the way you have to treat them."

Coach Ange Postecoglou's squad gather in Sydney from Friday for a week-long training camp.

"I'm sure Ange will put us through our paces and demand what he wants out of us and play the style of football he wants," Boogaard said.

"In a short amount of time, with players coming from all different teams, it's going to be a challenge but if anyone's up to it, I'm sure it's him."

Boogaard is a fan of Chelsea but the Mariners' New Zealand international McGlinchey said he had been a Manchester United supporter since he was a boy.

"I am obviously very proud to be selected in the team, its a massive honour," he said.

"It's just an added bonus that it's against Manchester United.

"I think the A-League has got a lot stronger over the years and I think we're at a good level now where we can test ourselves against these guys and sort of see where we are.

"Hopefully we can put a good performance on and show the world that we're a good league."
