New signing James Milner has inherited the famous number seven jersey at Liverpool, which in the past has been worn by greats such as Kenny Dalglish and Luis Suarez.

Milner is well aware that he was signed to replace the departing Steven Gerrard, and is ready to pass on his trophy winning experience he got while at City to the rest of the boys at Anfield.

“There are quite a lot of younger players,” he said. “I’ve been lucky enough to be playing for maybe 13 years or so, but hopefully I can bring that experience to the squad and help those younger guys along.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to win trophies. Obviously Liverpool came so close a couple of years ago to winning the league and being up against them in that title run-in, it felt like the whole world wanted them to win the league.

“That shows the love for the club and the global respect for the team.

“Hopefully, my ­experience can help us get into that position again.”
