Luis Suarez to make Anfield return

Luis Suarez will return to Anfield later this month along with a host of former Liverpool stars and other international names for a unique charity match.

The game, organised by the Liverpool FC Foundation, will see Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher each captain a side they have selected.

Players who have already confirmed their availability for the March 29 fixture include Suarez, who left for Barcelona in a £75million deal last summer, Fernando Torres, Pepe Reina, Dirk Kuyt, Xabi Alonso, Thierry Henry, John Terry and Didier Drogba, to name a few.

Current Liverpool first-teamers not on international duty will also feature along with some of the club's academy players.

Managers of the two sides will be announced in the near future.

Proceeds raised from the event will help fund Liverpool FC Foundation's community programmes, which benefit thousands of young people and adults throughout the city of Liverpool, and also support Alder Hey's new Hospital in the Park as well as providing support packages to Claire House, Positive Futures, Centre 56 and Cash for Kids.
