Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp praised”role model” James Milner after he assisted a youthful Liverpool side advance to the fourth round of this Carabao Cup.
Milner scored the opening goal as they won 2-0 away to Mk Dons on Wednesday night to prepare an enticing tie at home to Arsenal in the next round.
Harvey Elliott became the youngest player to begin a competitive game for the Reds at 16 decades and 174 days old and double struck the crossbar, but it was evergreen Milner who Klopp picked out as their key performer.
“This guy is on fire,” Klopp responded when asked concerning the 33-year-old’s participation.
“This is the way that it is, it is good. It helps a great deal and he is a role model for young players. Each day, if we could play he’d be like this every day – .
“The group had a lack of knowledge and too little rhythm and the participant with the most rhythm and experience has been the best player .
“We’re here to win the match, no other motive, so that I am rather glad we went through, that’s cool.”
Curtis Jones (18) was man of the match along with Ki-Jana Hoever (17) scored Liverpool’s second goal but it was Elliott who earned the plaudits from his supervisor.
“Sixteen years old and this type of footballer, it’s great for people,” additional Klopp.
“[He is] a fantastic boy, chooses the situation quite well, wants to learn and he can always be a unique player in moments but his overall game that’s really, really excellent.
“He was a bit unfortunate otherwise he’d have scored, he is a good player but they are all good.
“We don’t have any bad young players and that’s the reason why it is important we can provide these games and attempt to continue in this way.”
Liverpool return before facing Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield in the Champions League on Wednesday.
