In our regular Sunday feature, FIFA.com presents you with some of the biggest names from Planet Football who will be celebrating their birthdays over the coming week.
Kenny Dalglish discussed Steven Gerrard's fitness and Liverpool's form in pre-season, as the club presented their four summer signings - Charlie Adam, Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing and Alexander Doni.
The 26-year-old has revealed he was set on a move to Liverpool once they showed interest in him, hailed the club's fans and expressed his desire to run out at Anfield, while the club's director of football has discussed Doni's arrival.
The England winger has completed his move to Anfield from Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee, on the same day the Reds snapped up goalkeeper Doni.
Alexander Doni has completed his switch from Roma to Liverpool on a free transfer, having been linked to the 31-year-old Brazilian for much of the transfer windows.
Alexander Doni has said that a massive pay cut was the reason for his proposed move to Liverpool from Roma falling through, with the Brazilian saying he would have been earning "60 per cent" less.
