Ever wondered what it’s really like to be a Premier League footballer? Former Leeds United, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Manchester City midfielder and now European Cup winner at Liverpool James Milner reveals all.

This Is Anfield’s Joanna Durkan wrote in her review of Ask A Footballer:

Going into it I knew thousands of fans had submitted questions and that the book would pose as a Q&A, but admittedly, I had not expected it to evoke the feeling that you were sat in your front room or at the pub having a chat with the man himself.

I had instead anticipated that his personality would not be able to shine through and that a formal approach would take precedence over a more natural flow.

Instead, it effortlessly sucks you in, where his self-deprecating sense of humour both played into and juxtaposed the social media persona of ‘Boring James Milner’.

And so, I couldn’t help but laugh out loud at times when he answered all the hard-hitting questions regarding the great milk debate for tea, how much Ribena would be needed to fill the European Cup, his ‘beef’ with Lionel Messi and what his life would be like without Divock Origi.
