Steven Gerrard is all set to don the famous red jersey of Liverpool again next month, the club has confirmed.
The Reds legend is all set to represent his beloved club yet again in a charity match on March 25, when Liverpool take on Spanish giants Real Madrid at Anfield. The ex-England international will be joined by former stars Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, and Jamie Carragher, amongst others.
All proceeds from this charity game will be donated to support the LFC Foundation’s charity’s programmes and partnerships, whose objectives are to improve the health and life chances of children and young people residing in Merseyside and beyond.
Following the confirmation of his inclusion, Gerrard told LFC TV: “I’m really looking forward to playing in the LFC Foundation Legends Charity match – Anfield will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s a real honour to be sharing the pitch with such a great team of legends whilst raising money for the club’s official charity.
“I have been to a lot of games of late and I am absolutely steaming to get out there and play. There’s no better feeling for me. I’ve often been asked the question what has been the best buzz of my career and it was always running out at Anfield in front of a full house.”
Gerrard has been a regular visitor at Anfield as a spectator, but this will be the first time the legendary midfielder features for Liverpool since his last appearance at the famous ground, in which his team faced a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace in May 2015.
