Ask A Footballer [9781529404944]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Ever wondered what it's REALLY like to be a Premier League footballer?

James Milner is a talismanic member of Liverpool's recently-crowned Champions League winning side, and he is writing this book with the help of award-winning author Oliver Kay, Chief Football Correspondent for The Times.

As a hugely experienced England international and top-flight campaigner (18 seasons as a pro, more than 500 Premier League appearances with Leeds, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Manchester City and Liverpool), James is perfectly placed to answer fans' footballing questions in a wonderfully entertaining and informative journey through the thrills and spills, the peaks and troughs of high-level professional football.

Milner will explore the daily, weekly and seasonal rhythms of life at the top of his profession, the physical and psychological demands, the accolades and rewards which come from being successful, and the disappointments which inevitably follow if you come second best.

He'll take fans into the gym and physio's room and out onto the training ground, into the dressing-room and tunnel, and out onto the pitch to show fans what he experiences each week in this personable, funny and often hilariously self-deprecating book.

Featuring fans' most burning questions put to a consummate professional, and a Premiership manager's go-to player in an on-pitch crisis, this is the book that lifts the pro's lid on the beautiful game.


AUTHOR:

James Milner has played in the Premier League for almost 17 years now, for Leeds United, Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Manchester City and Liverpool. He scored his first goal for Leeds United aged just 16 years and 309 days - a then record. Now 33, he has scored 55 Premiership goals, has more assists than David Beckham and has 61 caps for England.

He is regarded as a modern era legend by most football fans, and Jurgen Klopp calls him Millie .
