Memories of AC Milan vs. Liverpool FC in many past matches.
A host of Reds greats will take to the turf again against AC Milan’s Glorie team at Anfield on Saturday afternoon 23 March for a special clash to raise funds for LFC Foundation, the club’s official charity.
In a game set to invoke memories of the 2005 Champions League final, players from both sides who featured on that dramatic night will face off again. The home team will be drawn from the ranks of the Liverpool Legends.
Both squads will be revelling in fond memories of European Cup finals, Istanbul 2005 and Athens 2007, and will be excited to confront each other again. Members of those historic squads on the turf will include Jamie Carragher, Patrick Berger, Jerzy Dudek, Vladimir Smicer and Louis Garcia, and AC Milan’s, Ricardo Kaká, Andrea Pirlo, Dida, Massimo Ambrosini and Gennaro Gattuso.
Liverpool FC Ambassador, Robbie Fowler, will captain the Reds in the hope of claiming another memorable victory against AC Milan, which will be led by Paolo Maldini.
Proceeds from the match will go to the LFC Foundation, which aims to create life-changing opportunities for children and young people. A portion will be donated to AC Milan’s official charity, Fondazione Milan, which works to empower the lives of the new generations with the values of sport and will allocate the proceeds of this charity game to its projects in Milan suburb areas, to support youngsters at social risk or in danger of dropping out of school.
"It’s a true honour to be part of this great match,” said Milan Glorie captain Maldini. “Games against Liverpool have always been hard-fought battles until the very last minute. It’s great to have the chance to relive such moments in this special stadium.”
He continued, “Let’s hope that Anfield, with its unique atmosphere, will be sold out. For all the members of the Milan Glorie team, it is also very important to support the charity projects of Liverpool FC Foundation and Fondazione Milan through this event."
