Liverpool fans stunned by Milner snub from Champions League Team of the Season

James Milner rarely gets the headlines, but he has been a pivotal component of Liverpool’s Champions League campaign this season.

The former England international, who has become a big favourite on Twitter, holds the record of most assists created in a single run.

This season, Milner has made nine goals for his teammates to help them reach the final of the competition.

Jurgen Klopp’s side obliterated the likes of Porto, Manchester City and Roma en route to the showpiece in Kiev.

Liverpool will be underdogs heading into the final as they take on Real Madrid, who are hunting for their third successive trophy.

The style of play adopted by both sides suggests that it could be a high-scoring game, which would make for entertaining viewing.

Ahead of Saturday’s showdown, UEFA announced it’s Champions League Team of the Season.

Unsurprisingly, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah and Madrid hitman Cristiano Ronaldo made the cut, but there was no place for Milner.

Instead, City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who failed to guide his team past the Reds in the quarter-finals, was selected.

Liverpool fans have been left feeling baffled.
