Milner fumes at Vancouver pitch following injury to Yaya Toure

James Milner has blasted the Vancouver pitch, labeling it ‘one of the worst’ following the injury to teammate Yaya Toure.

The Ivorian midfielder collapsed on the turf during their 2-1 win over the Whitecaps and is now set for further tests to determine the severity of his injury.

Toure was said to have injured his ankle and is now in danger of missing the start of the season but Milner blames it all to the horror Vancouver pitch.

He said: “It was probably one of the worst pitches we have played on.

“I am not blaming anyone but it is not ideal in pre-season and probably increased the risk of injury.

“There were big chunks coming out of the pitch, so turning was difficult.

“You try to put it out of your mind but when it is taking you five steps to turn round, subconsciously you are bound to think about it.

“Yaya has got injured and if it is not too bad, maybe we were a bit lucky to get away with it.”
