James Milner: I Was Right To Leave Aston Villa For Manchester City

Eastlands star has no regrets over leaving Villa Park.

Manchester City midfielder James Milner does not regret joining the club despite making a limited impact.

The 25-year-old’s season has been disrupted by injury restricting him to appearing in only half of City’s games since joining last summer in a £26million move from Aston Villa.

The Blues manager Roberto Mancini wanted the England international for his versatility and liked his industry and discipline.

Milner agrees he needs to improve but is happy he joined the revolution at the Eastlands.

“Definitely,” he said. “I moved to the club to win trophies and play in the Champions League and we’re still on course for that.

“We are also in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. I am delighted with that.

“We didn’t get too caught in all the ‘can you win the league’ talk.

“It is always tough moving teams but I am feeling more at home the longer I am there.”
