What he said:
“I’d love to still play — but you can’t risk a yorker on the toe!”
Manchester City’s James Milner would love to play cricket again but dare not risk a broken toe.
The electric midfielder was a useful bat for Horsforth in the Airedale and Wharfedale League in Leeds.
I got a couple of hundreds for Horsforth, I’ve got a lot of friends there and I’d love to still play — but you can’t risk a yorker on the toe!
The most important thing for me now in summer is rest but I hope I’ll be able to go back to cricket again once I’ve finished playing football.
What he really meant:
“I’m a footballer—I put foot to ball.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“What’s a shattered toe or two? I could always be keeper.”
