BBC PUNDIT SAYS ‘EXCEPTIONAL’ LIVERPOOL PLAYER HAS SHOCKED EVERYONE

Garth Crooks has praised Liverpool star James Milner on BBC Sport, and has said that he has shocked everyone by doing so well since leaving Manchester City.

 

The former Tottenham Hotspur forward made the comments about Milner after watching him in action for Liverpool against defending champions Manchester City at Anfield in the Premier League this past weekend.

 

The Reds won the match 1-0.

 

Former City star Milner started at right-back for Liverpool and was brilliant against Phil Foden.

 

 

BBC Sport pundit Crooks has said that no one would have thought that the the 36-year-old could have achieved as much success as he did with Liverpool since leaving City.

 

Milner joined Manchester City from Aston Villa in the summer of 2010.

During his time at City, the former Leeds United and Newcastle United midfielder won the Premier League title twice, the FA Cup once and the Football League Cup on one occasion.

 

The Englishman moved to Liverpool on a free transfer in the summer of 2015.

 

Milner has won the Premier League, the FA Cup, the EFL Cup and the UEFA Champions League once each at Liverpool so far.

 

GARTH CROOKS ON LIVERPOOL STAR JAMES MILNER

Crooks wrote: “Milner has been playing so long you’re inclined to forget he was once at Manchester City where he achieved tremendous success.

 

“No one thought when he left the Etihad for Anfield that he would have gone on to greater things but he did.

 

His performance against his former club in Sunday’s 1-0 win at Anfield was extraordinary.

 

“Milner is unflappable, dependable and above all an exceptional professional, and I’m not in the least bit surprised Jurgen Klopp refuses to let him out of his sights.

 

“Professionals like Milner only come around once in a generation and it is to Liverpool’s credit they have retained his services.”
