Liverpool star James Milner accused team-mate of being behind parody account

Liverpool star James Milner has accused a former team-mate of being behind a parody account dedicated to him.

An alter-ego account dedicated to the midfielder has become extremely popular on social media.

The Twitter 'Boring James Milner' has over 650,000 followers and only follows four people.

As well as Milner himself and talkSPORT presented Adrian Durham, two footballers are included Mamadou Sakho and Micah Richards.

Both have played with Milner, but the Yorkshireman has a decent idea of who is behind the account.

According to Richards, he has had to tell the former Manchester City star that it was not him.

Speaking for his recent column for BBC Sport he said: "Milly obviously has this tag of being dull or quiet but, believe me, he has got plenty of banter.

“He is super intelligent and very sharp, and rips into you in a very dry way that would always crack me up."

"It was hard to get the better of him but I always tried my best.

"So when someone started up the parody ‘Boring James Milner’ Twitter account when we were at City together, everyone thought it was me behind it, including Milner.

"Whoever it was, they were only following me and a couple of others at the time so I was the prime suspect.

“Whenever a new post went up he would say: 'Come on, mate, you've had your fun – stop it now.'

"I'd be going: 'I swear, Milly, it's not me!' But he wouldn't believe me.

“I ended up messaging the guy behind it, saying: 'Who is this? Because Milner thinks it's me!'

"He would not disclose his name but he sent me a picture of himself and it was just some random bloke. I just told him: ‘Keep it up. It is unbelievable – I love it!’”
