Four Liverpool FC Legends will join Jurgen Klopp’s men this May when they play a post-season game in Sydney, Australia.

Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Daniel Agger and Steve McManaman will join the first team on the pitch at the ANZ Stadium in an LFC first.

The club’s 125th anniversary will be officially marked on 3rd June 2017, when a season-long celebration will begin.

Gerrard, Agger, McManaman and Carragher will complete the team of past and present players who will play this special game in honour of the club’s rich heritage on Wednesday 24th May.

“It will be an honour to pull on the Red shirt and play football with an outstanding squad and former team mates," said Gerrard. "This is what Liverpool is all about, celebrating the family that has been around for 125 years.

“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 24th May.”
