Ox signs new Liverpool deal

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has re-committed himself to Liverpool by signing a new contract, the club have confirmed.

Since joining the Reds two years ago, the former Arsenal man made just 47 appearances for Liverpool and scored five goals, due to a heavy knee injury he sustained in the 2017/18 Champions League semifinal against AS Roma. He recovered in time to be a part of the squad that won the competition this year.

Given how Liverpool gave up on signing Nabil Fekir last summer and the fact that they haven’t signed a player of such mould since, Ox’s importance to Jurgen Klopp’s plans is obviously huge at the moment.

“I’m really, really excited – it’s been in the pipeline for a little while, so it’s nice to finally get it done and just extend my time here, which I am really looking forward to,” the man told Liverpoolfc.com having put his name on the contract.

“I feel like I missed out on a year, which I obviously did, so it’s really exciting for me to be able to sign. It’s something that I feel is an opportunity to give that year back and make up for lost time – and hopefully put in some good performances to make amends for not being around last year.”

“You’ve got to count your blessings every time you get an opportunity like this, you don’t get the chance to play for Liverpool Football Club every day. I am really excited to be able to extend my time here.”

As for the duration of the contract…
