At the start of the season, the 23-year-old might’ve expected to be sent out on loan for another campaign after a year spent with Stuttgart.
However, the Reds retained the Bolton-born warrior and as well they might.
There was some concern as to whether Phillips had a contract beyond the end of this season, but those fears were swiftly allayed by the defender’s agent who confirmed an extension had been reached some time ago.
This sparked another reaction as enthused Kopites celebrated more chances to witness the ‘Bolton Baresi’…
This man is exactly what we have been missing this season, a man with an aura which shows that he's here to win, he gives it his all for the team. What a player ?

Keep Philips at all costs. Hasn’t put a foot wrong at all. Proper old school CB. Should have gotten more game-time before this.
