CORK City boss John Caulfield has hailed the club’s capture of former Manchester United midfielder Liam Miller.
The 33-year-old Ballincollig man has agreed to join Cork City, and has previously played for Celtic, Manchester United and Sunderland, as well as the Republic of Ireland senior side.
‘We are delighted to sign Liam. Something developed over the last few weeks and it is a real marquee signing for us to get a player of Liam’s quality,’ Caulfield said.
‘He has been playing at the highest level in Australia, winning a league medal there last May. Having a Cork lad like Liam coming home is a major signing and a big boost for us at the start of pre-season. We are all looking forward to Liam coming in, we all know how good a player he is and it is a fantastic signing for us.
‘He has played in Europe with Celtic and Man United, and of course he has played internationally with Ireland as well, so he has huge experience, but, most importantly for me, he is still in peak condition, still at the top of his game and full of energy.
‘His all round strengths mean he is going to be a fantastic addition to the squad and we are all looking forward to seeing him in training soon.’
