Cape Town - England international James Milner is not going to lose any sleep over twitter parody account "Boring James Milner".

Talking to the press ahead of England's Soccer World Cup campaign preparations in Miami, Milner has no problem with the parody account and even finds it rather amusing.

Milner told ITV that he reads some of the tweets and will continue to read them throughout England's Soccer World Cup campaign.

The tweets of "Boring Milner" have earned cult status due to tweets about dreary and mundane subjects as making tea and eating toast.

His latest tweet is stating the obvious when arriving in Miami.

The spoof account as gathered quite a following since being started in August 2013. To date, the account has approximately a quarter million followers.

The England midfielder only has one wish, that his foundation's account, promoting youth sport participation, had more followers. "My foundation has 15,000 followers. I wish it had as many (as the spoof account)."

Milner admitted that he went on the hunt to find out who had set up the account and suspected someone inside Manchester City but he has since given up the chase.
