NewsMartin Skrtel joins LFC Legends squad for Man Utd clash
Martin Skrtel will make his debut for Liverpool FC Legends when they meet Manchester United at Anfield next month.
The former Reds defender, who called time on his professional career earlier this year, is the latest signing for the team for the forthcoming second leg of the Legends of the North contest.
After a 3-1 victory at Old Trafford in May, LFC Legends host their rivals in a 3pm BST kick-off at Anfield on Saturday September 24.
Skrtel – who made 320 appearances for the club during a spell from 2008 to 2016 – joins the likes of Fabio Aurelio, Jerzy Dudek, Steve McManaman and Momo Sissoko in representing Liverpool once again, with more names to be announced for Sir Kenny Dalglish’s squad ahead of the match.
