Premier League legend says return to Leeds United would be ‘amazing’

He has enjoyed an illustrious career spanning almost two decades and although James Milner is still going strong for Liverpool he can’t help but talk about a return to the club where it all started for him.

The 33-year-old Premier League winner who won the Champions League with the Reds last season, has spoken about his future in football with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is yet to offer Milner a new contract and the lack of talks has led many to question whether the journeyman will leave for pastures new at the end of the season.

In an interview with the Sportsman, Milner discusses his new autobiography – ‘Ask A Footballer: My Guide To Kicking A Ball About’ – as well as his thoughts on a move abroad, life after football and a magical return to Elland Road.

He said: “I’m open to anything, I’d be interested in going abroad and experiencing a new league, a new style of football, new lifestyle too, but that all just depends on where it is and also on my family too. I think I’d be more interested in coaching than the media side.

“I see people going into punditry all the time but I think, in terms of who I’ve played for and with and what I’ve learnt as a player, it would be a shame not to pass that on within football to young players.

“I am a Leeds lad and I want the team to do well, I’m a fan. I always follow the team and the results.

“So you can never say No or even Yes because just so much changes in football, you never know what happens.

“At the moment I’m a Champions League winner with Liverpool and this year we’re really going for the Premier League, but I don’t know what the future will hold.

“It would be amazing to play for Leeds again but no one from the club has ever contacted me about that.”
