James Milner has admitted that he’s still a huge Leeds fans in an interview with The Times, and that he is still vehemently anti-Man United.
Milner started his glittering career at Elland Road, where he came up the youth ranks to make 50 appearances.
He moved to Newcastle for £6.6million in 2004, before playing for Aston Villa, Man City and Liverpool, where he now faces the most important game of his career.
Liverpool play Real Madrid in the final of the Champions League on Saturday night and lifting the trophy would be the highlight of his career, with the player now 32-years-old.
Talking in the Times, Milner revealed that he had never stopped supporting Leeds though.
“Growing up a Leeds fan, I was never allowed to wear a red T-shirt, my old man never allowed it.
“Seriously. ‘We can’t wear red. We’re Leeds.’ It was strange when I signed for Liverpool, actually wearing red. My dad made a joke about it, saying, ‘That’s the first time I’ve seen you in red.’
“I still follow Leeds and want them to do well and still have that same feeling towards Manchester United.”
Leeds United fans still hold out hope he might return to Elland Road one day.
