James Milner admitted the growth of a beard was down to his fellow Liverpool teammates Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson egging him on to do so.
It’s a rather strange sight given the midfielder has generally opted for a clean-shaven look throughout his playing career, though one that is growing on us quickly.
To give credit where credit’s due, we feel it rather suits the former Leeds United star.
