'Boring Milner' responds to Twitter parody

Published 1 Comments

James Milner has reacted to the 'Boring James Milner' Twitter account in a way only the Manchester City midfielder could.

The profile now has over 100,000 followers and in an interview Milner revealed he had seen the social media account which parodies his alleged boring life.


Just woke up because the wind is really loud. I hope that I get back to sleep soon. If not I will be tired in the morning.

Milner spoke about having the account drawn to his attention in a recent interview with The Guardian, saying: “It's got a few followers now, hasn't it?" Milner said. "It's a bit of fun and I've read a few of the tweets”

The midfielder said he doesn’t mind been branded as boring as long as he’s able to board the flight to Brazil for the World Cup this summer.

"Hopefully I'll be going to the World Cup finals as well. That's the plan. It'll be an amazing stage to play on and I'd love to go but you get there by playing good football for your club. I'll do that as well as I can and hopefully it will get me on the plane."

Milner has been largely understated this season as Manchester City seem to romp through the league.

He was a substitute for Sunday's game against Newcastle and but came on to set-up the second goal for Alvaro Negredo in what would be a difficult result for City.

Newcastle were aggrieved following the decision to rule out a goal from Chiek Tiote in the first-half, and Milner recognised the scale of the result for City away from home.

"It feels like a massive result because these are the type of really tough tests that you want to win if you have any hopes of topping the table," he added.

Milner has appeared 30 times for City this season creating 11 goals and scoring two himself.

City's next challenge comes Blackburn rovers in the FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday.
