New signing James Milner has been unveiled as Liverpool’s new No.7 following his free transfer from Manchester City this summer
The 29-year-old has now registered his name among the top players to wear the number 7 shirt, from Kevin Keegan to Steve McManaman, Harry Kewell and Luis Suarez. Milner has played down the importance but wants to make his own mark at Anfield.
“I was No.7 at Man City, but at a club like Liverpool you can wear any number on the squad and it’ll have been filled with amazing players who have worn it before,” he told the club’s official website.
“I know seven is a special number for this football club and hopefully I can be a special player for this club and hopefully I can do the shirt proud and win plenty of matches for this football club.”
