James Milner’s not made the most effervescent start to life with Liverpool, since arriving on a Bosman transfer in the summer.
His performances have been a little stale, and we need to see more creativity and ideas from someone who claims he’s a central midfielder.
Still, the 29-year-old worked incomparably hard, and this clip from Manchester City’s official YouTube channel has warmed him to us a little more!
Joe Hart, alongside ‘Chappy’ (whoever that is), receive a call from Milner while driving to training…
Living up to his ‘boring’ reputation, Milner reels off some items on Christmas list, including a water purifier and resealable freezer bags – claiming he ‘doesn’t want another mess like 2013… The tea strainer fiasco’!
It’s actually pretty hilarious, and shows what a good sport the England international is. It can’t be easy being known as the world’s most boring footballer, and he plays up to the tag brilliantly.
