John Arne Riise clarifies himself over James Milner and Mesut Ozil comments

James Milner is on the books of Liverpool at the moment, while Mesut Ozil is at Premier League rivals Arsenal.

John Arne Riise has clarified on social networking site Twitter that he rates Arsenal attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil, but Liverpool’s James Milner is his type of player.

The former Liverpool defender has stated that he likes England international midfielder Milner more than Ozil because he can fight and run for 90 minutes.

Milner is a very hard-working footballer, but there is no doubt that Ozil is a much better player.

The Germany international is one of the best creative midfielders in Europe and one of the best footballers on the planet.

Although Milner has his own importance in a team, he is not technically as good as Ozil.

The former Manchester City midfielder, though, is a player who will give his all throughout the 90 minutes and work hard for the team.

Liverpool are 10th in the Premier League table at the moment with 13 points from nine matches, while Arsenal are second with 19 points.
