Liverpool duo Marko Grujic and Dejan Lovren visited Anfield Sports Community Centre (ASCC) earlier this week to show their support for the LFC Foundation's 'Respect 4 All' programme.
The Reds pair attended the event, staged by the club’s official charity, to join in with a coaching session before presenting the participants with signed LFC scarfs.
The Foundation has two Respect 4 All centres, in Anfield and Wirral, which deliver free impairment-specific coaching to young people and adults with complex additional needs.
Lovren was delighted to be able to be able to attend the event in Anfield, and said: "It is an absolute privilege to be able to come down to the coaching session today and participate with those involved.
"To be able to give something back to the community is extremely important and it is an honour that we are in a position to be involved with LFC Foundation events such as this."
Respect 4 All project lead Ryan Moignard added: "Respect 4 All is a brilliant programme which gives those who previously haven't been involved in sport an opportunity to participate which is really satisfying.
"I am thrilled that we have been able to get two of the first team players down to today’s event as the participants were absolutely delighted to see Dejan and Marko.”
