Milner delighted with Liverpool Solanke capture


Liverpool veteran James Milner has welcomed new signing Dominic Solanke.

Solanke, after winning the U20 World Cup, is set to join the Reds on July 1 from Chelsea.

“He’s obviously had a great summer, he’s a good young player coming through,” Milner said.

“We’ve got a young squad anyway, so I think it’s good to keep that going. Being one of the older guys hopefully I can help him come along.

“But I think he’s shown already this summer, with what he’s done with the England team, winning the World Cup is a great achievement.

“To come out of that as the best player, you look at the other names over the years who’ve been named the best player in that tournament—he’s up there with some of the best.

“That’s great for him, a great confidence-booster, and if the Liverpool fans didn’t know who he was, they do now.”
