Milner doesn't need the money. He might follow his heart and want to be coached by Bielsa and lead his home town club before he misses the chance. He's exactly the leader our side was missing on the pitch this season. I'd exchange a fee for Pontus to finance Milner's wage for 2 years.
If he wasn’t ex Leeds, just another mid 30’s journeyman would you feel the same way?
With Ballgirl on this. No way would I describe Milner as a Journeyman. He's just played a key role in the team that finished runners up in the PL and may get a champs league medal.
I suspect Klopp rates him which is why he keeps playing him. I know you say you've got loads of playing and coaching experience. Indeed you may well have played at a higher level and won more than Jurgen Klopp as a player - who knows, but in the coaching pedigree stakes, in the absence of any info to the contrary, then I reckon he beats you hands down. So I'll take his opinion.
The fact that he hasn't been offered another contract by the bin dippers only proves that at his age they probably think the wages are better spent on a younger player,
Not about been ex-Leeds. Simply that because he's one of ours he may well consider coming back. Doubt we could entice a player of his quality otherwise. Not been all misty eyed about an old Leeds player, merely seeing a player with medals under this belt who's just played 40 odd games for the PL runners up and possible Champs League winners who might just, at a push, though I doubt it play for Leeds next season.
