James Milner was at the centre of plenty of praise on social media last night following his valiant performance against Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
The 35-year-old midfielder started for Liverpool last night in what was a must-win game for the Reds if they were to keep their hopes of a seventh Champions League triumph alive, but the Merseyside fell short and could only manage a 0-0 draw against Zinedine Zidane’s Los Blancos.
Despite a scoreless draw, Milner won plenty of plaudits for his performance against the La Liga team despite playing just 60 minutes of football, and on social media, the former Manchester City man was showed with praise from Liverpool supporters for the showing he put on in a huge game for the Anfield side.
Here’s what Liverpool fans had to say about Milner’s performance against Real Madrid on Twitter…
