If one were to ask any football fan to describe James Milner, it’s safe to say most would use the word “industrious”. And they wouldn’t be far from the truth; the Englishman is often relentless in his play, working his socks off throughout the game. However, his technical ability is often underrated by many.
The recent edition of “Inside Liverpool” featured some of the squad engaging in a 5-a-side game during training today. The smaller environment let the players showcase their amazing technique; Jordan Henderson and Nathaniel Clyne impressed but it was makeshift left-back James Milner who stood out in the game.
His performance was so good that it earned him a rather gentlemanly handshake from manager Jurgen Klopp at the end.
