Most football fans opinion is that Milner was undervalued at the Etihad where he was unable to hold down a starting top given the tremendous talents at the administration of the team.
With Yaya Toure, Fernandinho and David Silva occupying his positions that are favored, it was an uphill task breaking into City's line-up.
The great thing is the fact that, most times when he was called into action, the former Aston Villa player consistently gave an excellent account of himself which points to the fact which he possesses the possibility to do well if playing regularly.
With the departure of team icon and powerful captain, Steven Gerrard (who now plies his trade in the MLS) the Merseysiders were on the hunt for a seasoned player in the mold of 'Stevie' who'd not only fill in the enormous gaps but also provide direction to the remainder of the pack.
Starting from his time at Aston Villa (where he made his name) Milner has always been more of a pragmatic player with no sidesteps or sleek moves but with an amazing work rate, determination along with a shot that could rip off the goal post.
Kop chief Brendan Rodgers will be under tremendous pressure this season after last period's disappointment of failing to challenge for the English Premier League title and an inferior UEFA Champions League campaign.
With that in your mind, the gaffer understood he desired seasoned players like Milner to mix with kids like Jordan Ibe and novices as in case of Roberto Firmino.
