Why Man City fans booed Liverpool veteran Milner…

Liverpool's James Milner was the subject of boos and jeers from Manchester City supporters on Sunday.

The 31-year-old left Etihad for Anfield in 2015 after five years, more than 200 appearances, and two Premier League titles with City which has helped them become a major player in England over the past five or six seasons.

There was plenty of disbelief from Reds fans regarding City's treatment of the player, as you can see from some Twitter posts below:

But some City supporters have shed some light on the reasons why Milner was targeted during the pulsating 1-1 draw.

One of the reasons why the City faithful took offence because after leaving the club, Milner once said: "I've been very fortunate to play in a lot of good teams…but as a team this (LFC) is probably the best team I've played in."
