Steven Gerrard will make his final appearance at Anfield before leaving Liverpool n the summer when they take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
To commemorate the day, which Gerrard has already admitted will be an “emotional one”, adidas have written a message to the former England captain inside the special football boots that he will wear for the match.
Designed with Liverpool’s red and white colours as the base, the message can be seen to read: “You leave a legend, you’ll return a hero. The city of Liverpool is always with you. You’ll never walk alone.”
Gerrard made his debut for Liverpool 17 years ago and has gone on to captain both club and country, having retired from international football following last summer’s Worodl Cup, but he will bring the curtain down on his stay at the club next weekend in the final Premier League game of the season against Stoke.
Not ready to hang up his boots yet though, Gerrard will follow in the footsteps of David Beckham and Robbie Keane in moving to the MLS and joining LA Galaxy.
