James Milner targeting trophy haul from his Liverpool career

James Milner

The midfielder also says he is hoping to help the youngsters at the club to improve.

James Milner has told Liverpool's official website he is targeting a “trophy cabinet full of medals” from his spell at Anfield.

The midfielder was officially revealed as a Liverpool player on Monday having agreed to join on a free transfer from Manchester City last month.

He already has two Premier League winners’ medals to his name, as well as an FA Cup triumph and a Capital One Cup win as well, and he says he is planning on adding more to his collection from his spell with the Reds.

“I'd like a trophy cabinet full of medals,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

“That's the reason why I've come here. I want to enjoy my football, play well and show people what I can do. I want to do what I've tried to do throughout my career and be the best player I can be, and try to improve each day.”

A young squad at Anfield

Milner will be adding some much needed experience to the Reds squad, with them having lost their most experienced player in Steven Gerrard after he decided to join La Galaxy in the MLS.

It is a relatively young squad at Anfield, with manager Brendan Rodgers known to favour buying youth to develop for the future, as he has done with signings such as Phillipe Coutinho, Emre Can and Lazar Markovic.

There are also the likes of Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe at the club, and Milner is hopeful he can help the young players to improve.

“Hopefully I can help younger players do that, but I can also learn a lot from them,” he added.

“There are a lot of great players at this club as well, so I'll learn as much as I can and hopefully help one or two players along the way and help this club be successful.”
