Making a cup of tea is not task that should be taken lightly, at least if you ask Liverpool duo Andy Robertson and James Milner.
The two Reds players, in a video uploaded on Twitter by the club’s official handle, can be seen discussing the do’s and don’ts of tea making:
What do you do when all your socks are in the wash? What’s the secret to the perfect cup of tea? And many more of life’s unanswered questions… 🤣🤣

Milner, the model professional, likes a bit of tea while his younger teammate Robertson clearly doesn’t but the two still agree on some points at least.
“If you’re going to put two spoons of sugar in it, you might as well grab a can of coke.”
The aforementioned line, spoken by Milner, gives us an insight into the modern day footballer’s life and how strict their diet must be.
Of course, with the versatile veteran being involved, there just had to have a gem of advice in the video and this is it, hands down: “Put the tea bag in it, let it soak. Go and do something else like get your socks out of the washing while it soaks.”
Hilarious, but considering the laugh riot that Milner is on Twitter, not surprising at all.
Just as the mood in the Liverpool camp is buoyant after a summer that has seen the club sign a raft of high-profile players, fans can’t wait for the new season to get started.
