BBC pundit Gary Lineker has admitted that he was wrong about James Milner and insists he is a ‘brilliant professional.’ Speaking on the BBC Match of the Day Top 10 Podcast, he backtracked on the Liverpool midfielder, saying: “A few years ago I tweeted something.

“He always played in different positions and I tweeted something, I did a tweet along the lines of ‘I don’t really know what James Milner is’ and I was wrong, because actually what he is is an unbelievably brilliant professional who will play anywhere for you.

In 2017/18 the Reds were beaten by Real Madrid in the final and, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is more often remembered as Liverpool’s standout midfielder on the path to Kiev, Milner is forgotten.

Interestingly, Roberto Firmino is joint-fourth with seven assists also in 2017/18.

Liverpool fans, rival supporters and pundits all gloss over the fact that he holds the single-season record for Champions League assists with more than the likes of Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney and Neymar have ever managed.

“I apologised and he took it with great spirit.” One thing I have always found annoying is that Milner, who is on £150,000 a week, never gets credit for doing anything other than working hard, being versatile and being willing to play anywhere for Jurgen Klopp.

That season, he set the record for most assists in a single campaign with nine while Wayne Rooney (8) in 2013/14 and Neymar (8) in 2016/17 come in next.
