A lot of Aston Villa fans are reminiscing over former player James Milner, after his 2009/10 season highlights, in which he won PFA Young Player of the year whilst at the club, were posted on Twitter.
Milner played 123 times across six seasons for the club, per Transfermarkt, scoring 22 times and assisting 25 goals. Since then, the player has had a very successful career, being part of the Manchester City squad that won the club’s first-ever Premier League title, via Transfermarkt.
He then moved to Liverpool, per Transfermarkt, where he recently won the Champions League in 2019 whilst also making 61 appearances for England.
Even at the age of 34, he is still a vital cog in Jurgen Klopp’s squad, who see themselves at the top of the League and on course to win their first Premier League title.
He is a versatile player under the German manager, and even fills in at right-back if necessary, via The Daily Mail.
Here’s what fans had to say following the tweet:
