By Bees?! Posted on in Community, PES2018, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Just when you thought the week couldn’t get much better with the release of PES 2018, KONAMI have gone and ended it in legendary style with the announcement of some new Liverpool FC legends.

Front and centre of the announcement is Steven Gerrard who made over 700 appearances for the Merseyside club winning a UEFA Champions League winners medal along the way.

He’s joined by another UEFA Champions League winner in Steve McManaman as well as former England Internationals Kevin Keegan and John Barnes. They will all appear in the game alongside Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Ian Rush who had already been announced at gamescom last month.

The inclusion of the legends comes as part of the ongoing official partnership between KONAMI and Liverpool FC. This partnership will continue to bear fruit with the official press release for today’s announcement stating that further Liverpool FC legends would be announced soon.

At the time of writing it was still unclear how users can recruit the Liverpool legends into their myClub teams, or the ratings that each will be given.

What do you think? Which Liverpool legend would you most like to spin, and who would you like to see added in the future? Let us know on the PES Fan Forum and on our Official Twitter Channel.
