Liverpool want so many trophies that fans forget when we won them - Milner

Liverpool want to win so many trophies that fans won't remember when they were won!

That is the view held by veteran midfielder James Milner, who hopes his high flying side can continue racking up silverware.

The Reds are currently competing in the FIFA Club World Cup, while their youngsters lost 5-0 to Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup quarter finals.

Milner wants to see his side claim silverware on multiple fronts this season.

"Since I have been at the club it was important for the club to get that first trophy on the board," Milner said on Tuesday to reporters.

"We had been unfortunate in a few finals but the team has moved on and we have heard many people talk about it.

"We don't want to be remembered as the team who won one major trophy. We want people to remember us as a group and forget which year we won each trophy.

"You could see how we bounced back from the Champions League defeat when we bounced back and won it this year.

"There is a long way to go in the League but with the tempo and way we have played takes a special mentality and we have shown that - but there is a long way to go but the group is focused on the next step ahead."
