Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard shares a heartwarming moment with a young fan

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard shared a heartwarming moment with a young fan while in Saudi Arabia.

During the summer, Gerrard made the move to the Saudi Professional League as he took on the role of manager for Al Ettifaq.

This marks Gerrard’s first position since he was dismissed by Premier League side Aston Villa in October 2022.

This week, he had a delightful interaction with a young supporter who was visiting the club’s facilities. You can view the footage below.

The young fan, who is called Roman Dean, was visibly emotional as he shared a hug with the former Liverpool captain.

After finding out Roman was over in Saudi Arabia on holiday, Gerrard said: “Well listen, he’s going to take your number right? And what I’m going to do for you, you’re going to come to training and meet Jordan Henderson and Gini(Wijnaldum).

“Unless you want to come and meet them now if you want? You don’t want to meet me, you want to meet the players.”

Later on Al Ettifaq’s social media account, pictures of Roman meeting the likes of Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum were posted.

Roman’s mother, Michelle, also commented on Al Ettifaq’s post.

She wrote: “This is my son, he’s out there visiting his dad who now lives in Bahrain…absolute dream come true for him. Thank you to everyone that made it happen.”

According to Michelle, Roman dreams of becoming a professional footballer one day and is an avid Liverpool fan.

It has been a decent start to the season so far for Gerrard and Al Ettifaq as they currently sit fourth in the Saudi Professional League table after they collected 16 points from their opening seven matches.

Al Ettifaq will be back in action on Sunday as they take on Jeddah in the King’s Cup.
