Liverpool's New No. 7

JAMES MILNER - The England international was announced as a Liverpool player on Monday having joined Brendan Rodgers’ team on a free transfer on 1 July. Milner, who will wear the No7 jersey at Anfield, turned his back on Champions League football with the deposed Premier League champions plus a more lucrative contract extension at the Etihad Stadium to become Liverpool’s first summer signing on a £150,000-a-week deal.
Milner agreed to the Anfield move after being assured Rodgers would remain Liverpool manager following an end-of-season review conducted by the club’s owner, Fenway Sports Group. And the 29-year-old has admitted he was convinced to leave City by Rodgers’ willingness to hand him the central position that Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini could not offer on a regular basis at the Eithad.
