Liverpool: These fans react to tweet about possible coaching role for James Milner

Liverpool midfielder James Milner has been earmarked for a potential new role at the club by AnfieldIndex.com contributor @jagdesh on Twitter.

He envisions the 33-year-old following in the footsteps of Mikel Arteta at Manchester City and experiencing a swift transition from the playing squad to a coaching role.

Arteta finished his playing career at Arsenal, making his final appearance in May 2016, and less than two months later he was appointed as assistant manager to Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium.

The Spaniard was 34 years and two months old when he played his last match – Milner will be 34 years and four months of age when the current season ends, with his Liverpool contract due to expire at the end of this campaign.

The midfielder doesn’t appear to be fading from first team view at Anfield any time soon, though, having played in six of the Reds’ first eight games of the season and started three of them. [via TransferMarkt.co.uk]
