Luis Suarez to make Anfield return for Liverpool charity game

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez will return to his old stomping ground at Anfield for charity game at the end of the month.

The game is being organised by the Liverpool FC Foundation, with two sides captained by club captain Steven Gerrard and former vice captain Jamie Carragher will go head to head.

Suarez will be joined by fellow former Liverpool players Fernando Torres, Pepe Reina, Dirk Kuyt and Xabi Alonso, as well as the likes of John Terry, Thierry Henry and Didier Drogba.

Money raised will go towards a number of causes, including the club's foundation, which funds community programmes across the city.

Proceeds will also go towards Alder Hey's new children's Hospital in the Park project, the Wirral-based Claire's House children's hospice, youth charities Positive Futures and Cash for Kids, and Centre 56, which supports women and children who have suffered or are at risk of domestic abuse.

Suarez left Liverpool at the end of last season after scoring 31 goals in the Premier League, winning all three player of the year awards in the process.

His controversial bite during the World Cup for Uruguay in the summer seemingly led to his departure for £75m to the Catalan giants.
