James Milner calls Man Utd “fucking wankers” and Lampard labels Liverpool arrogant

James Milner calls Man Utd “fucking wankers” and Frank Lampard labels Liverpool arrogant after beating Chelsea 5-3 on Wednesday night.

He lifted the Premier League trophy with his second club last night at Anfield, after previously winning it with Manchester City.

The Leeds native can be heard making a joke to this end in a clip which the midfielder definitely didn’t expect it to be picked up on.

Footage, which came from a player’s Instagram account, has been going viral on various social media platforms.

In the video, Milner can be heard saying how it’s the first time he’s happy to see red ribbons on the trophy – because previously it’s always been one of their rivals.

Milner: “First time I ever wanted a red ribbon. It’s always been United before. Fucking wankers”

After the game, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard advised Liverpool not to get ‘too arrogant’ after winning the Premier League title.

As the pyrotechnics went off outside Anfield, it became more heated in the technical area with Jurgen Klopp and Frank Lampard exchanging words after Mateo Kovacic went into Sadio Mane from behind to stop Senegal international’s run from the halfway line.

Reflecting on the incident, Lampard told Sky Sports: “For me, it wasn’t a foul from Kovacic, and there were a lot of things that weren’t going our way. But I’ve not got a problem with Jurgen Klopp. The way he’s managed this team has been fantastic.

“Fair play to Liverpool Football Club, they’ve won the league, but also don’t get too arrogant with it. That was my point, but it’s done. In match play, you can get emotional and that was it.”

“It was an extraordinary game,” Lampard added. “Even when you say they threatened to run away with it, I felt we were in it. I could feel that in the way we were playing.

“It was a turnover and a great strike. A non-foul and then another strike that goes into the top corner. On the third, it was terrible from us defending the corner.

“But other than that in match play, we were OK. The first goal gave us hope and the lads showed great character but they’re a fantastic team and we can’t afford to make those mistakes.

“Some of the stuff I saw tonight from our team was resilience and quality. At 4-3, if we didn’t concede the fifth, I felt like we were coming. But it wasn’t to be.

“You can never be happy in defeat, but when you see the quality of the first two Liverpool goals, you understand what this place is and why they’re so successful at the moment.

“We’re building towards that, and we’re going to have to suck this in tonight as it’s where we want to get to one day.”
