James Milner: ‘One regret? You don’t enjoy it as much as you should’
The Liverpool veteran says the demands on elite players mean they rarely have enough time to savour their successesJames Milner celebrated Liverpool’s FA Cup victory by treating himself to a Coke on the coach from Wembley to the airport. “Full fat, because Diet Coke is worse for you,” he claimed. By 10.30 the next morning he was sitting through a video analysis meeting of Southampton. Chasing a quadruple is not all glamour.After the joy and the exertion of Wembley, where Liverpool and Chelsea players almost ran themselves to a stand-still in the second half of extra time, Jürgen Klopp’s players must go again at St Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday and win again to take the title race with Manchester City to the wire. Lifting trophies helps alleviate tiredness, although Milner wishes there was more time to savour each one.
