The truth is, these nine-year-olds won’t have any idea how good Gerrard was at his peak, as they were born after our Champions League triumph!
But this still must have been a monumental moment for the youngsters and their families, after being invited to Anfield to sign contracts with the club.
Not only did they sit down with our legendary former captain (who one day might manage them) but also Academy Director Alex Inglethorpe and put pen to paper…
Whether these boys make it or not (the vast majority won’t of course), they’ll always have this memory to look back on.
Nice touch, LFC.
A momentous day for these young Reds! 🔴 pic.twitter.com/2rY9v6re8U
