Liverpool have completed what many felt was impossible by overturning a 3-0 deficit against Barcelona in the Champions League.
The Reds achievement was certainly appreciated by the entire football fraternity, given it’s miraculous nature.
Several players starred for Liverpool on the night, including James Milner. Playing in central-midfield and then covering at left-back, he was sensational throughout.
After the game, when the fans were singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ in unison with the players, Milner was seen in tears.
Leeds United fans certainly spotted it.
Milner is Leeds born and bred. A massive fan of the club it has been no secret he has a desire to one day return to Elland Road.
Fans at Leeds still love the man. His exit from the club was born of financial necessity and he has always spoken of his first club with nothing but love and respect.
So Leeds fans appreciated one of their own making it into the Champions League final in such dramatic circumstances. Leeds fans also have something of an ulterior motive.
Milner’s contract at Liverpool expires in the summer and many a Leeds fan believes he is on his way back to West Yorkshire, especially if they win promotion in the play-offs.
So many Whites supporters took to Twitter to congratulate him on his victory. But they also made it clear that after the Champions League final, they expect him to be singing ‘Marching On Together’ at Elland Road next season…

Nice for James Milner to win the Champions League before he assumes his position of Leeds United captain before retirement.#lufc

Milner in tears and singing YNWA… unbelievable scenes. I’m sure he’s upset about missing out on automatic and cleverly slotting in MOT lyrics where he can #lufc
