This post prompted Shay Given to respond teasing his former teammate.

The pairing, who played together at Newcastle United and Manchester City, are close with each other and Given will no doubt be hoping the Leeds-born midfielder can win his first major European title to go with his two Premier Leagues.

The Liverpool squad are currently going through warm-weather-training as Jurgen Klopp prepares his side for their second European Final under his guidance.

Milner was captain on the night when Liverpool lost 3-1 to Sevilla in the Europa League Final three-years-ago. His experience of major games and performing under pressure will be vital if Liverpool are to come away with the Champions League for the first time since 2005.

The 33-year-old is also an expert penalty taker, scoring five this season so, if the final goes all-the-way, you can guarantee he will step up and take a spot-kick for his side.

Signed on a free four-years-ago Milner has been a superb signing and, if he can lift the Champions League, surely his already high-standing in the game will sky-rocket.
