Despite his age, he is still popular.
Reporter David Onstein of the British media’The Athletic’ said on the 29th (Korean time), “Brighton Hove and Albion are considering signing James Milner (37, Liverpool) as a free agent.”
Milner is a tough player on the English stage. He made his professional debut in 2002 at Leeds United. After that, he joined Liverpool in 2015 after going through Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Manchester City. His career is also spectacular, including winning the Premier League three times, the English FA Cup twice, and the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL) once. He also played 61 matches in the England national team uniform.
It’s not flashy, but it’s evaluated as a player who silently fulfills his role. He plays a variety of positions to suit the circumstances of the team. It is a ‘multiplayer’ that can go out as a side striker, defender, and central midfielder. He had excellent stamina and activity. He has a high football intelligence and has sharp and accurate kicks.
Thanks to him, he has been given regular opportunities to play for any team. It is ranked third in the most appearances (613 games) in Premier League (PL) history.메이저놀이터
But he is already 37 years old. He was put on as a substitute in 19 of the 25 league matches he played this season. His contract with Liverpool expires in June. It is likely that he will leave the team as a free agent.
Brighton are keeping an eye on Milner. His experience and leadership were highly appreciated. Brighton are currently in 8th place in the Premier League table. He could aim for a ticket to European competitions given up to 7th place. If he wins a ticket, he reckons Milner’s experience and leadership can be of great help.
Brighton aims to win against Wolverhampton in the 34th round of the English Premier League in the 2022-23 season, which will be held at Amex Stadium in Brighton, England on the 29th.
