Milner explains new deal
James Milner has extended his Liverpool contract and vowed Jurgen Klopp’s men will come back “hungrier for more” trophies.
The veteran midfielder will play his 20th consecutive Premier League season after agreeing a new 12-month deal. Milner, who made his debut as a 16-year-old for Leeds, was out of contract this summer, and has accepted reduced wage terms.
Boss Klopp was desperate for him to sign, to keep his on-field contribution, but also a huge influence on the dressing room. Milner, 36, played 39 times last season, including 14 starts, as Liverpool won the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, but fell just short in the Premier League and Champions League.
He said: “Last season was extraordinary, even though it didn’t have the ending we hoped it would – but I think that will only make us all even hungrier for more success. I’m very pleased to be staying for another season. I have never taken playing for this club for granted and I never will.”
“An overriding feeling for me – and a vitally important one in the process – was the belief I can still contribute to the team. The gaffer was clear what he thought and that was a big factor in me extending my contract.”
