Fernando Torres will make a return to Anfield next month when he lines up for Liverpool FC Legends against AFC Ajax Legends in the annual LFC Foundation charity match, presented by AXA, the club’s official training partner.

El Niño represented the Reds for three-and-a-half years, scoring 81 goals in 142 appearances after joining the club from Atletico Madrid in 2007, and will now pull on the famous shirt once again in aid of LFC Foundation.

This will be Torres’ debut for LFC Legends and his first time back playing at Anfield since an all-star charity game in 2015.

The 39-year-old quickly became a modern-day hero for supporters after a blistering start to life on Merseyside, netting 33 times in his first season, and fans will be able to see him back in action on Saturday March 23 when LFC Legends host their Ajax counterparts in L4.

Torres will team up with a host of former Liverpool stars, with the first seven already confirmed earlier this month, including fellow forwards Djibril Cisse and Ryan Babel.
