Liverpool: Fans believe that James Milner is past his best

Liverpool: Fans believe that James Milner is past his best - Liverpool News

Many Liverpool fans believe that midfielder James Milner is no longer the player he once was after witnessing his performance, despite his side coming out as 1-0 winners against Ajax.

The 34-year-old started alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Curtis Jones – who was replaced at half-time by Jordan Henderson – and found himself in a physical battle with likes of former Manchester United and Everton players Daley Blind and Davy Klaassen from the first whistle.

How many points did Liverpool finish the 2019/20 season on?

Milner has not been a regular starter for the Merseysiders for some time and is yet to make the first eleven in the current Premier League campaign, having only made nine starts during their title-winning season (via Whoscored).

Despite this, Klopp previously described the veteran as a “role model” after he was part of their cup runs last season, where many first-team players were rested to prioritise their league, European and Club World Cup campaigns respectively (via Sky Sports).

However, supporters were beginning to run out of patience with the vice-captain, mainly due to him being behind the play for large parts of the first part, which resulted in him going into the referee’s book in the 38th minute.
