Liverpool Masters have won in their previous two trips to Singapore as they downed Singapore and Manchester United Masters in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
“Signing for Liverpool in 2001 was a big moment for me because Liverpool is very big in Norway, so it’s amazing. It’s been one year since I retired and I’m enjoying myself, but I do miss football! I love Singapore and the people; they’re amazing. I can’t wait to come back and spend more days here,” shared John Arne Riise.
Mikaael Silvestre is keen to meet fans in Singapore and promised that it will be a fantastic experience.
“Arsenal’s heritage and history are what make the club special. It will be a great occasion for us to get together again and to share the moment. The stadium is fantastic and it’s also nice to play with different generations. It’s also all about meeting the fans, so I’m really looking forward to it,” said Mikaël Silvestre.
“We are delighted to stage another Masters game involving two of the biggest names in English football. The support for both teams is tremendous in Singapore and given where the teams finished in the League this season, we thought it would be appropriate for the former players of both teams to take to the pitch here in Singapore and ‘settle old scores’,” concluded Steve Black, Chief Executive Officer of Masters Football Asia.
