“He’s so good to have him around the dressing room” – Paul Robinson claims priceless Liverpool superstar sets the right standards.
Former premier league goalkeeper Paul Robinson has showered praises on veteran Liverpool midfielder James Milner.
The former EPL star showered praise on Milner’s character and called him “priceless” for making new signing Luis Diaz comfortable on Football Insider.
Milner is said to have “laughed and motioned towards the newcomer” which has certainly helped the debut of Diaz in a 3-1 victory over Cardiff City.
The reds made a huge statement when they signed Luis Diaz from Portuguese Fc Porto. The Colombian striker was signed by the Reds during the January transfer window by paying a transfer fee of £49million.
Diaz has huge potential to be a great player at Liverpool and there was some heavy interest from Tottenham to sign him.
During the pre-match warm-up at Anfield yesterday, James Milner made sure Luis Diaz was made to feel part of the group as he laughed and motioned towards the new Signing, urging him to work faster.
According to a recent report from The Athletic, James Milner was instrumental in making Luis Diaz comfortable in his new atmosphere. The Englishman made sure the Colombian was part of the group during the FA Cup tie.
After learning about these reports, Paul Robinson praised James Milner on Football Insider. The former EPL star was extremely impressed with Milner’s gestures towards the young striker and called him a coach in the dressing room.
“Players like James Milner are priceless. He’s so good to have around the dressing room. Milner is a coach in the dressing room if you like. Not for one minute are they the manager’s eyes and ears but they talk about the right things, set the right standards, and integrate players like Diaz into the team.”
“That is why a player like James Milner is so important with what he did before Diaz’s debut. Diaz is a top player and I think he’ll make a real difference once he’s settled.”
