Ever wondered what it’s REALLY like to be a Premier League Footballer?
My name is James Milner and I’m not a Ribena-holic. Let me share insights into what it’s like being a professional footballer, my highs – and a few too many lows – playing for England.
There isn’t a current player who’s been playing Premier League football as long as I have, and that gives me a pretty rare perspective into how the top-flight game has changed over the past seventeen years.
In this book, I explain how a footballer’s working week unfolds – what we eat and how we prepare for matches technically, tactically, mentally and physically – and talk you through the ups and downs of a matchday. I reveal my penalty-taking techniques, half-time team talks and the differences between playing against Lionel Messi, Wilfried Zaha and Jimmy Bullard.
So this isn’t an autobiography. The whole point of Ask A Footballer is that you, the fans, asked me questions and I have used my own experiences to answer them. I hope you like it, and don’t find it too boring.
