Man Utd boss Ferguson big fan of Villa midfielder Milner

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits he's a big fan of Aston Villa midfielder James Milner.

Ferguson believes he has been a revelation this season.

"He has great endurance and can run all day," said Ferguson. "He's a strong lad, who can play in both wide positions and in the centre of midfield. In the modern day game that is vital."

Interestingly, Ferguson admitted earlier this season that his midfield lacked the endurance of past players like David Beckham and Bryan Robson.
