John Brewin for ESPN FC:
Brendan Rodgers has made frequent mention of the lack of experience within his squad beyond Gerrard. Now, he has a player with almost 600 professional appearances to call on, a veteran of two World Cups, and one who has picked up plenty of silverware during his time at City. In short, a winner. Such players are in increasingly scarce supply at Anfield; only Jordan Henderson, Martin Skrtel and forgotten man Jose Enrique remain from Liverpool’s League Cup winners of 2012.
A sensible signing and will be a good player for Liverpool. He is the type who never has a bad game.
