A special tribute match for Steven Gerrard before the legendary captain leaves for MLS has been scheduled for March 29th, reports the Independent.
Liverpool transfer news
Gerrard already had a testimonial against Olympiakos back in 2013, but our long-serving skipper will get another – as a result of the confirmation that the’ll be heading to join La Galaxy come the end of the season.
All ticket sales will towards local charities and the Liverpool FC Foundation.
The game is expected to be a star studded affair, with Jamie Carragher (who along with Gerrard, will manage one of the sides), Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez all pencilled in to make one-off returns.
Other names invited include Daniel Agger, Dirk Kuyt, Robbie Fowler, Javier Mascherano, Alvaro Arbeloa and Vladimir Smicer.
The match is during an international break – meaning it won’t affect our top four pursuit too much, as we don’t have a fixture until one week afterwards.
