Liverpool confirm FOUR stars will exit summer transfer window after playing almost THOUSAND times together
LIVERPOOL have announced that Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will leave the club this summer.
The Reds quartet have played nearly 1,000 games combined in their respective Anfield careers.
In a statement published on the official website, Liverpool gushed about their donations to the club.
The conclusion read: “As Saturday’s visit to Aston Villa is the Reds’ last home game of the season, the quartet will be given special recognition at Anfield, with further tributes to follow on the club’s digital platforms after the end of the season.” All the best to Roberto, Naby, James, Alex and their families for the future.
“All four players will leave with gratitude and appreciation for their contribution.”
Firmino, 31, will leave Anfield as a cult hero after completing 360 games for the Reds.
The Brazilian joined under Brendan Rodgers in 2015, scoring 109 goals for the club and helping them win the Premier League, the Champions League, an FA Cup and a League Cup.
Although no move has been confirmed yet, Firmino is being linked with a move to Barcelona.
Milner has now played 330 games for the Reds since joining from Manchester City on a free transfer in 2015.
The 37-year-old is expected to join Brighton this summer.

Keita arrived from RB Leipzig in 2018 as a much-touted £48m signing.
He found it difficult ever to reach the top at Anfield and endured an injury-plagued last season at Liverpool, which saw him make just 13 appearances in all competitions.
Despite his lack of commitment, the 28-year-old has attracted interest from former club RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has since become a forgotten man at Liverpool.
The former Arsenal star has had a terrible streak of injuries over the years, managing just 146 Reds appearances in six years.
Despite his injury woes, Oxlade-Chamberlain was linked with Brighton, Aston Vill and Newcastle earlier in the year.
