Liverpool News: James Milner is happy to play at left-back for Jurgen Klopp

Milner has spent the majority of his career playing in midfield for the likes of Leeds United, Newcastle, Aston Villa and Manchester City.

But, since signing for Liverpool as a free agent in the summer of 2016, the England international has found himself at left-back.

Liverpool's problems in the area are well-documented with Alberto Moreno often struggling and Andy Robertson still adjusting to life at the club.

And Milner has revealed he has no qualms with playing in that position.

“Last season I was asked to do a job," he said.

“Said at the time I didn’t enjoy playing left-back but team comes first.

“I’m enjoying playing in midfield and helping the team.”

He also says he would have no problems readjusting to his natural position.

"I’ve played there in training but there’s nothing like games," he added.

"It might take a few games to getting back to 100%.

“I just want to contribute at both ends of the field.”

Liverpool are currently gearing up for their Champions League game against Maribor tomorrow night.

And Milner is looking forward to another European night at Anfield.

"That atmosphere makes a massive difference," he said.

"People expect us to win but we need to stay focused to have the crowd behind us and make it a special night at Anfield."
