The Liverpool legends squad is assembling ahead of a game with Ajax and with all eyes on the likes of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres, one teammate has his eyes set on a training session meeting with the pair.

Speaking exclusively with Empire of the Kop’s Substack, Gregory Vignal was asked about fears of a test in training against the ex-Red duo and provided the perfect comeback of: “A test for them as well!”

It was of course all said in good spirit, as old friends are reunited for the great cause of helping the LFC Foundation – who in turn help those in areas of high need and deprivation across the Liverpool City Region.

Add on that Sven-Goran Eriksson is also being handed a chance to manage the team, it’s set to be a really special occasion for all those inside the stadium.

It’s easy to forget why we all fall in love with football and moments like this weekend’s meeting will show why the sport can be much more than a game.
