James Milner has revealed why he has signed for Liverpool.
Milner, 29, was wanted by both Liverpool and Arsenal after leaving Manchester City as a free agent at the end of last season.
And Milner says regular football was the big draw for him after struggling to get regular starts at City.
“City are a great club and I had five great years there and enjoyed every minute,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“The fans were brilliant with me the whole time there, and that made the decision difficult.
“I was lucky enough to win trophies and be part of a good squad there, but speaking to the club about what their plans were and where they saw me over the next few years at the club, and then speaking to the manager here and his plans going forward and for myself, I just thought it was the right thing for me to hopefully go and get more game time and be part of something special.
“I’ve been very fortunate to play for some massive clubs during my career so far and this is another one.
“It’s a great challenge for me. I want to play football and play more centrally if I can – and that’s where the manager said he sees me playing.
“That’s a big thing for me coming to the later stages of my career – I’m not going to say the end of my career because I still feel I have plenty of football left in me! – I want to play as much football as I can.”
