James Milner has sent a message to star forward Sadio Mane following his move to Bayern Munich.
The Senegalese international joined the German champions in a deal worth up to £35.1m, and is expected to be their talisman for the upcoming season.
Mane posted a farewell message on instagram in which he received a message in the comments from his former teammate, James Milner, saying “Good luck mate.”
Milner and Mane have featured together 189 times for Liverpool. Only Joe Hart and Roberto Firmino having played alongside Milner more often.
The 36 year-old midfielder has featured 289 times for Liverpool since arriving on a free transfer in 2015, from Manchester City, and has been an integral part of their Premier League and Champions League winning campaigns.
The former England international has previously been dubbed ‘Boring Milner’ on across social media and his response to Mane’s departure was very fitting.
The nickname came from the creation of the twitter account ‘Boring James Milner’ in which the account would post ‘boring’ tweets pretending to be James Milner.
I am very happy to sign a new contract at Liverpool. Yes, I'm on a reduced salary but the club have said I can take as many tea bags from the club canteen as I want.— Boring James Milner MBE (@BoringMilner) June 6, 2022
So who is the real winner here?
Milner was even once referred to as ‘Boring Milner’ on the popular UK reality show, Love Island, and did not look best pleased. However his reaction to Mane’s departure does not help his case.
Milner has recently signed a one year contract extension which will take his Liverpool career to the end of the 2022/23 season.
Despite his ‘boring’ reputation, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has previously described Milner as a ‘role model’ to aspiring footballers and he will no doubt play a big part in the merseyside clubs' season.
