Milner Puts His Leeds Roots On Hold

Last updated : 17 February 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

James Milner: "All of my family are Leeds fans and it's going to be tough for them.


"My mum and dad had season tickets for years, but they gave them up when I left because they come to watch me.

"I have only been back to Elland Road once since I left to play for England Under-21s - and I don't think we won.

"I am glad that they seem to be on the way back up. I believe they should be in the Premier League.

"But I'll do everything I can to make sure that we win the game.

"Losing any game is a massive blow and the ­performance against ­Southampton was nowhere near the standards we have set ourselves.

"We have to bounce back by winning against Leeds. We have the ability to do it."
