Maxi Rodriguez set to make Anfield return

Maxi Rodriguez

Maxi Rodriguez is set to make an Anfield return in March's Liverpool FC Legends clash with Barça Legends.

The former Argentina international, who retired late last year, became a huge fan favourite during his two-and-a-half-year spell with the Reds.

Signed from Atletico Madrid in January 2010, Maxi went on to make 73 appearances and score 17 goals – including two hat-tricks – as well as lift the League Cup in 2012.

And it has now been confirmed Maxi will pull on club colours once again on Saturday March 26 for the LFC Foundation legends charity match, which kicks off at 3pm GMT at Anfield.

He is set to join the likes of Patrik Berger, Luis Garcia, Dirk Kuyt and Steve McManaman – to name a few – against a Barça side featuring some iconic names from the Spanish team’s history.

Presented by AXA and brought to you in association with Forever Reds – the official LFC former players association – proceeds from the special event will go to charitable causes including LFC Foundation, the Barça Foundation, Forever Reds and the Owen McVeigh Foundation.

Tickets for the must-see legends fixture are on sale here.
