Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has told his players to make themselves legends in tonight’s clash with Real Madrid, as reported by the Daily Star.
The Reds face the Spanish giants in the Champions League, having struggled to put together any consistent form since the start of the new season.
The game against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday spoke for the rest of the season, with defensive frailties almost costing them an important three points.
They also lacked the attacking fluidity of last season, when the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez tended to make up for their consistent woes at the back by outscoring the opposition.
Rodgers has, however, called on the current flock to cement their place in the history books by defeating last year’s Champions League winners.
Rodgers is also confident that his players can step up against Real, and as a result, does not fear Los Blancos.
He said: “These are the types of games that are talked about for years.
“Stevie’s two goals in the last game against them are still talked about.
“We are going into the game after being up and down.
“They can go into the game to get a result for the team and what can come from that is a legendary status.”
