Liverpool fans in Australia must be excited. The club announced that four of its legends will put on the red shirt when the team travel to Sydney next month, for a highly anticipated friendly game against local side Sydney FC.
It will be an honour to pull on the red shirt and play football with an outstanding squad and former team-mates – this is what Liverpool is all about, celebrating the family that has been around for 125 years
Steven Gerrard said in a statement, having agreed to be one of those who will travel to Australia with the team, a special treat for all Liverpool -and not only- fans Down Under.
Our fans in Australia always give us a warm welcome, so it’ll be a great feeling to see the ANZ Stadium turn red on May 24
Gerrard also said. The former Liverpool captain, who is expected to take charge as coach of their under-18s team next season, will be joined by ex teammates Jamie Carragher, Steve McManaman and Daniel Agger, who were also asked -and of course accepted- to make the trip to Australia.
Liverpool have visited the country before, and the lucky ones who were at Melbourne’s MCG will never forget a crowd of almost 100,000 fans singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ before and after a friendly game there.
