Oxlade-Chamberlain on Liverpool exit: Time to play regularly

Liverpool veteran Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is preparing to leave the club this summer.

The 29-year-old wants to pursue a new challenge for more playing time at this stage of his career.

Affectionately known as The Ox, the midfielder has been a key member of Jurgen Klopp's side for the past few years.

Despite injury issues, Oxlade-Chamberlain has often contributed in crucial ways to trophy winning seasons.

“I still want success, I've had a taste of it here, they've been the best years ever," Oxlade-Chamberlain told The Mirror.

“So, if by any chance, I can have another sniff of achieving anything like that again then I'd bite your hand off.

“I think I need to go and play somewhere as consistently as possible. They say you're coming into your peak at 29, so I want to go and test myself, play consistently somewhere.

“I'm still hungry, I still feel I have a lot of games left in me and a lot of energy left in me. I don't like to say a point to prove, but that's always been my attitude. From when I went to Arsenal, I felt like that. When I went to Liverpool, that's how I felt. When I walked through the door, I felt like I needed to do that. It's the same again. To prove myself and to prove the people out there to show what I'm capable of still doing."
