FORMER LIVERPOOL CAPTAIN Steven Gerrard will wear the iconic red shirt once again when Jurgen Klopp’s men travel to Australia in May.

Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Daniel Agger and Steve McManaman will be part of the Liverpool team who will play a post-season friendly against A-League side Sydney FC next month as part of the club’s 12th anniversary celebrations.

Retired since hanging up his boots in November last year, club legend Gerrard is reportedly set to become Liverpool’s U18s manager next season but before then, he will play alongside the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino at ANZ Stadium.

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

“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 24 May.”

Liverpool are third in the Premier League and on track to qualify for the Champions League with six matches remaining. They host Crystal Palace on Sunday.
