NewsSeven players confirmed for LFC Legends clash with Ajax Legends
The first seven players signed up to feature for Liverpool FC Legends against Ajax Legends at Anfield in March have been confirmed.
Goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek – a hero of the Reds’ 2005 Champions League triumph – and fellow shot-stopper Sander Westerveld, who was part of the 2000-01 treble-winning side, will both be involved once again.
Defenders Martin Skrtel, Fabio Aurelio and Gregory Vignal are also set to play in the LFC Foundation charity match, presented by official training partner AXA.
Djibril Cisse, another member of the team from that unforgettable night in Istanbul, will be among the attacking options for LFC Legends, alongside former Reds and Ajax forward Ryan Babel, who will feature for both sides during the contest.
The full management team for the annual fixture – in association with Forever Reds, the club’s official former players association – will be announced in due course.
The event at Anfield will kick off at 3pm GMT on Saturday March 23.
Tickets are on sale and 100 per cent of the proceeds raised will support LFC Foundation and partner charities’ programmes, changing the lives of young people across the Liverpool City Region and beyond.
Premium tickets are available from £50 and hospitality tickets start at £150 – please go here for more details.
