A Liverpool Legends team, featuring Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, will play an Australian Legends XI in Sydney on January 7th.

Ian Rush, John Arne Riise and Didi Hamann will also feature for the Reds, who will be managed by Gerard Houllier.

The game takes place during the MLS off-season, meaning Gerrard is able to feature. It will be the first time he’s worn the Liverbird since his final game for the club in May.

The match will be played at the 82,000 seater ANZ Stadium.

“It will be great to play with the official Liverpool FC Legends,” said Gerrard. “The squad looks like it’s a great set of lads, it’ll be good to get on the pitch with them. Our fans are the best and to play in front of them again will be emotional, I’m sure.”
