Real Madrid and Liverpool legends to meet in Bernabeu charity match

Legendary former Real Madrid and Liverpool players will face each other in a charity fundraising game at the Bernabeu on June 14.

The annual showpiece friendly, organised by the La Liga club's official foundation, has seen teams representing AC Milan, Bayern Munich and Manchester United take part in recent seasons.

Former Madrid galacticos Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo and Roberto Carlos have all graced the occasion, with opponents including Roy Keane, Edgar Davids and Pavel Nedved.

The Liverpool legends side will be managed by striker Ian Rush, with Robbie Fowler, Luis Garcia, Jamie Carragher, Michael Owen, Steve McManaman, Vladimir Smicer and Harry Kewell among the players who have agreed to feature.

Madrid president Florentino Perez told the club's official website: "Liverpool's biggest legends will be involved in the Corazon Classic Match 2015.

"They are one of the world's greatest clubs, with five European Cups to their name, and are greatly admired because of their past and present.

"This game is now close to the heart of our supporters. It is a traditional event and a celebration of football. We are working together with the fans for a charitable cause."

Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre said the Anfield club honoured to be taking part and explained: "This will mark the first official game for the Liverpool Legends. It promises to be a fantastic match.

"It is a deep honour to be part of such a spectacular game. Both sets of supporters will enjoy the occasion, and will help towards raising money for the Real Madrid Foundation and the Red Cross project."

Madrid said ticket prices for the game would be €5, €10 and €15, with all proceeds going towards buying educational materials for thousands of children as part of a Spanish Red Cross programme.

Perez said the game showed Madrid -- the world's richest club with annual revenues of over €500 million -- were committed to helping "society's most vulnerable members."

"We have to make the most of our power as a club to show solidarity with those most affected by these tough times," he said.
