The chance to be part of a Liverpool side playing in Sydney under Jürgen Klopp was one Steven Gerrard was simply never going to pass up.
Exactly two years to the day of his 710th and final appearance for the Reds first team, the iconic midfielder and Academy coach will join the current squad for a post-season meeting with Sydney FC at ANZ Stadium on May 24.
Jamie Carragher, Daniel Agger and Steve McManaman will be alongside him, too, for a unique concept inspired by the club’s 125th anniversary in June.
Having previously experienced the passionate support for Liverpool in Australia – in particular, the 95,000-strong rendition of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ in Melbourne in 2013 – Gerrard cannot wait to return.
