Milner fires out warning
LIVERPOOL midfielder James Milner has sent a dynasty warning to City and the rest of the Premier League.
Former City man Milner signed a new deal last week which tied him down at Liverpool until the end of the 2022 season. And now the 33-year-old is looking to extend the club’s current dominance at home and abroad.
Liverpool are ten points clear at the top of the Premier League and 14 points ahead of City, while Jurgen Klopp’s men also won the Champions League in June.
That sixth European success has Klopp’s side preparing for the Club World Cup this week and ahead of the brief tournament, Milner spelt out what he believes is still to come from his team.
“Since I have been at the club it was important for the club to get that first trophy on the board. We had been unfortunate in a few finals but the team has moved on and we have heard many people talk about it,” Milner said.
“We don’t want to be remembered as the team who won one major trophy.
“You could see how we bounced back from the Champions League defeat when we won it this year.
“There is a long way to go in the League but the tempo and way we have played takes a special mentality and we have shown that – there is a long way to go, but the group is focussed on the next step ahead.
“It is special to be here. You have to be successful to be here.
“It will be difficult, but you want to get that winning habit and win trophies as a group and to keep adding them.”
