This clip of Steven Gerrard’s surprise visit to a very ill Liverpool fan will warm your heart

Fantastic gesture from the former Reds skipper

Paul Moore

The look on her face is amazing.

Since announcing his retirement from football, Steven Gerrard has been a regular pundit on BT Sports but it’s clear that the Liverpool icon will soon be taking his first steps into the coaching world.

During his time at Anfield, Gerrard made over 850 appearances in a career that spanned 19 years. In this period, he won eight major trophies with Liverpool, including the European Cup in 2005, before joining LA Galaxy in 2015.

Liverpool has always prided itself on being a club that has a strong connection with the community and their supporters, and this is epitomised by a recent visit that Gerrard paid to a young girl that’s suffering with a rare and aggressive brain tumour,

Charlie is as 11-year-old Liverpool fan that suffers from Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), the second most common type of high grade brain tumour in children.

Take a look as the Liverpool icon arrives at Charlie’s house and gives her the surprise of her life. A smiling Gerrard says “I like this bit” as he knocks on the door and waits for her to answer.

Charlie’s family are raising money so she can go to Germany for treatment and have shared the video in the hope that it will help them to raise the much needed funds. If you would like to donate, please visit her Go Fund Me page here.
