Loads of Liverpool fans have showered midfielder James Milner with praise after the contributions he made in the build-up to his side’s 1-0 win against Shrewsbury Town.
The 34-year-old was present in the stands as he watched the under-23 side knock out the League One outfit in their FA Cup fourth round replay. Manager Jurgen Klopp ensured that his players honoured the winter break and therefore Neil Critchley and his team stepped in to replace the seniors. Despite this move, one player could not keep himself away from the action.
Milner, who is valued at £10.8m by TransferMarkt, was praised by Critchley following the impact that had on Tuesday’s historic night. Liverpool’s team stood at an average age of 19 years and 102 days, and the veteran midfielder could not keep himself away. He delayed his holiday and wanted to give the young players some encouragement instead, as cited by TEAMtalk. Supporters were delighted with Milner and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan described him as the love of his life after giving up his free time to help out the youngsters.
