Sven-Goran Eriksson set to manage Liverpool: Anfield awaits cancer-stricken boss

Sven-Goran Eriksson, the former England boss, is set to fulfill his long-held dream of managing a Liverpool team from Anfield’s dugout. This opportunity will come during the LFC Legends charity match against Ajax Legends scheduled for March 23. This is part of the annual LFC Foundation charity event.

The match will see the likes of Ian Rush, John Barnes, and John Aldridge join forces with Eriksson. The Swede, who recently disclosed his battle with terminal pancreatic cancer, has expressed his lifelong desire to manage the Liverpool side. Liverpool FC has officially announced Eriksson’s involvement, expressing their delight at having him as part of the LFC Legends management team for the upcoming charity game.

The club and LFC Foundation eagerly anticipate welcoming Sven and his family to Anfield for this special event. The statement also shines a light on the playing squad for the match, which includes notable figures such as Jerzy Dudek and Ryan Babel, who has connections to both Liverpool and Ajax. The charity match, presented by AXA, aims to raise funds for the LFC Foundation and its charity partners.

Previous editions of the event have raised substantial amounts, with the proceeds being utilized to support various initiatives and work schemes in the Liverpool city region and beyond. Ticket prices for the Legends charity match have been set at £28 for adults, £8 for juniors, and £18 for those over 65.
