Man City midfielder Milner: England players must ignore bad press

Manchester City midfielder James Milner admits England's players need to ignore paper talk involving teammate Wayne Rooney.

Milner fronted the media yesterday as news broke of allegations about the private life of Manchester United striker Rooney.

"We have got to make sure things don't affect us," Milner said.

"Things are always being said in the paper, good and bad, about the England team.

"That is part and parcel of football. The only thing that matters is what happens on the field. We just have to make sure we get the result.

"Winning matches is the only thing that matters."
