The upcoming charity match at Anfield will not only give fans the chance to watch their Liverpool heroes but it will also treat them to a chance to watch Real Madrid’s former world-beaters.
It promises to be a game contested by two line-ups that, with everyone in their prime back in the day, would have been a feast for the eyes of the footballing world.
Young Reds will get the chance to see legends like Steven Gerrard and Ian Rush live for the first time while the older generation of fans will be able to relive this club’s past success.
Former Liverpool man Steve McManaman has set the tone for a special occasion by describing how the Madrid stars, who he will team up with on the day, will be excited by the opportunity to play at Anfield.
“It’s great that a lot of the Real Madrid players are going to come over and play at Anfield,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“It’s a very special ground for [them]. As much as the English think the Bernabeu is special, or the Nou Camp for example, Old Trafford and certainly Anfield are very special grounds for the Spanish players.”
It will be a welcomed day in which fans can relax and enjoy amidst what has been a hectic and frankly stressful season at times.
The likes of Luis Figo, Emilio Butragueno and Roberto Carlos are set to feature for the Spanish giants and will come up against a Liverpool side expected to include several members of the 2005 Champions League final team.
Certainly a day to look forward to.
