Biography
 
Milligan burst onto the scene with Northern Spirit and quickly established himself as a player of the future. Injuries blighted the early part of his career, but then-national coach Guus Hiddink noticed his talents and included him in the 2006 World Cup squad. His tough, no-nonsense approach has won him many admirers. Milligan moved from Sydney FC to Newcastle Jets in 2008 and then followed that with spells in China, with Shanghai Shenhua and in the J-League with JEF United. Milligan’s experience and ability again won him a place in the Qantas Socceroos’ squad for the 2010 World Cup. In January 2011, Milligan signed for Melbourne Victory as an injury replacement player and formalised his place in the team signing a three-year deal ahead of the 2012/13 Hyundai A-League season, a season where he continued to shine and took home the club's top honour - the Victory Medal. Milligan also played a pivotal role throughout the Socceroos World Cup qualification campaign for the 2014 World Cup. His versatility to play as a holding midfielder or in the heart of the defence will be endearing to the Socceroos side as he aims to get his first World Cup minutes in Brazil having already been to two World Cup Finals. Milligan was named captain of Melbourne Victory ahead of the 2013/14 pre-season, the third permanent skipper in the club's history.
