“You never know" - James Milner reflects on FA Cup final victory
Come the end of the game, Milner said that he was going to enjoy the victory because it could be the last trophy that he ever wins.
“Yeah, you get 40 or 50 messages but you get on the bus and you can deal with that. You are lucky to be a footballer, lucky to play in any final and to win ten medals, if you’ve said that to me at the start of my career then I’d have been pretty happy!
“I said to Trent (Alexander-Arnold): ‘don’t get bored of it!’ What an incredible player he is but he’s got to be. He deserves everything but you never know when things are going to change and you have to enjoy it.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
We can see where Milner is coming from. The reality is, the Englishman is 36 years of age. In other words, Milner is at the backend of his career.
He is going to enjoy winning a trophy more than others simply because he may never get another chance to lift some silverware.
You can't take anything for granted in life and Milner certainly isn't. On another note, the midfielder has been a superb servant for the club over the years.
