You’ve got to love Jon Flanagan.
He’s developing into a really good full-back, he’s a born and bred scouser, and he absolutely loves the club.
It’s great to have him around, and now he’s told the Echo that he never wants to leave…
“It was always my dream to play for Liverpool. I pinch myself every day when I think about what I’ve done so far but hopefully there’s a lot more to come,” he said.
“Carra and Stevie were both massive for me. From the first day I went to Melwood, they were giving me great advice and guiding me. Being local lads themselves, they knew the situation I was in. I learned so much from them.
“I’m a local lad and this is my club. I want to stay here and help Liverpool win trophies. I want to be a one-club man.”
He also had a some words to say about his still-to-be-agreed contract extension, saying he was leaving it all up to his agent:
“Just to get back playing in the Premier League, it was a great feeling. I’d missed that buzz and it’s fantastic every time I pull on the shirt for Liverpool,” he added.
“When your chance comes you have to take it and I was satisfied with how it went. The manager gave me a chance and I was happy with my performance.
“I’m just focused on my football and letting my agent deal with the contract side of things. I just have to do my stuff on the pitch and show the manager what I can do.”
I’m sure we’ll all agree that he and club get the new deal in place ASAP.
