James Milner is often mocked for being a ‘boring’ man with basic and simple needs but when asked to confirm his favourite takeaway, he may surprise a few supporters with his choices.
Speaking with Sky Sports and EA Sports, our vice captain was asked, ‘Would you rather order a Chinese takeaway or a curry?’ and responded with: “Chinese takeaway. Probably a bit of chicken and sweetcorn soup with prawn crackers, duck pancakes – I’m a starter man really, so things like that. Nothing really surprising or exotic, which will surprise you immensely!”.
The 36-year-old never fails to deliver a golden moment in any of his interviews and the whole thing is a great watch but this insight into his Chinese order is certainly enlightening.
Next time you’re tucking into some duck pancakes, remember you’re sharing a diet with one of the greatest athletes to have ever played in the Premier League!
