Liverpool veteran Milner: I'm fit - no matter what Van Dijk says!

Liverpool veteran James Milner says he feels as fit as he ever.

This despite the taunts from teammate Virgil van Dijk over his age.

"To be honest I feel fine, I feel the same," he said on TalkSport Sports Breakfast.

"I'm waiting for that day when we do a session and I feel it a bit harder than the boys.

"It's always nice when I'm asking the young lads if I'm finding a hard session tough and they're agreeing with me. I don't know, they might be doing that just to make me feel better!

"Virgil [Van Dijk] gives me plenty of stick – that's what one of the celebrations last season was about [his 'old man' celebration after scoring against Cardiff back in April].

"He's always joking. When there's Premiership Years or a game in black and white on the TV in the treatment room, he'll say, 'Milly, what number are you?"
