Johnston: Liverpool friendly important to Victory

23 July 2013 18:25

Melbourne Victory's players will see the match versus Liverpool as one of the biggest of their lives, a former Anfield favourite has said.

Craig Johnston insisted that, while it may be a non-competitive fixture, Ange Postecoglou's charges "will remember it for as long as they live".

The 53-year-old, who was born in South Africa and now lives in Australia, played for Liverpool for seven years in the 1980s and he suggested that it would be a historic moment for Liverpool to come to Australia.

"They have never been here," Johnston said. "It's a huge game, there are a lot of youngsters there (in the Melbourne Victory team) and basically we said it is going to be the biggest game of their lives."

Johnston also said he would prefer the Victory to come out on top in the match at the MCG in Melbourne.

"I would like Liverpool to get beaten. Why? Because it is not a league game. It is a pre-season friendly.

"I love what Ange does, I think he is the best thing to happen to football in this country."
