NEW Cork City FC signing Liam Miller has one goal – to win the league this year.
The capture of the 33-year-old former Celtic, Manchester United and Sunderland midfielder is a major coup for Cork City after the Ballincollig native agreed a contract with the club.
In recent years, Miller played in the Australian A-League, and he was a member of the Brisbane Roar team that won the 2014 Grand Final. He will join his new Cork City teammates for pre-season training later in the month.
‘I am delighted to be returning home. I will be proud to wear the Cork City jersey and do what I can for the team in front of all my family and friends,’ said Miller, who has been capped 21 times at international senior level.
‘I am best mates with Mark McNulty; I played with both him and Colin Healy since U16s and have lots of good memories. I also know Billy Dennehy who I played with at Sunderland.’
Miller’s goal for the coming season: ‘To win the league.’
