Milner Puts His Leeds Roots On Hold
Leeds-born James Milner faces his old club today - with his family having mixed feelings.
James Milner: "All of my family are Leeds fans and it's going to be tough for them.
"My mum and dad had season tickets for years, but they gave them up when I left because they come to watch me.
"I have only been back to Elland Road once since I left to play for England Under-21s - and I don't think we won.
"I am glad that they seem to be on the way back up. I believe they should be in the Premier League.
"But I'll do everything I can to make sure that we win the game.
"Losing any game is a massive blow and the performance against Southampton was nowhere near the standards we have set ourselves.
"We have to bounce back by winning against Leeds. We have the ability to do it."
