Only a couple of days until Liverpool are back in action, and we got news of Fernando Torres’ return to Anfield, plus whispers of another club potentially looking at Xabi Alonso.

 

El Nino at Anfield for the first time since 2015!

Liverpool Legends’ annual charity match is nearly upon us, and another big name has been added to the squad, with Torres to take part for the very first time.

He did previously play at Anfield in an all-star charity match with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Luis Suarez in 2015, but this will be his first outing as a ‘Legend’.

The match is against Ajax Legends on March 23, and the Reds will be led by a management team of Ian Rush, John Barnes and John Aldridge, plus former England manager and lifelong Liverpool fan Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Over 43,000 tickets have been sold and if you want to find out how to be there, you can do so here!

It’ll be good to see you again, Fernando!
