James Milner 'learning Spanish to talk to teammates'

Manchester City midfielder James Milner is learning Spanish in order to communicate with his teammates, Micah Richards has revealed.

Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards has revealed that James Milner has been learning Spanish to communicate with his teammates.

Richards, a former teammate of Milner, signed for Fiorentina during the summer on a season-long loan.

Richards told the Daily Mail: "Vincent Kompany tried to speak to the boys at one point and said they had to learn English but there are so many Spaniards and South Americans they just slip into their own language.

"James Milner has actually been having Spanish lessons for a couple of years."

Milner signed for City in 2010 and has gone on to make 116 appearances.
