A Champions League stalwart with more than 167 appearances to his name, you'd think that very little would faze Gianluigi Buffon beneath the bright lights of a Tuesday (or Wednesday) night, but there is one team he would rather avoid: the mighty Leicester City.
Slaven Bilic's side lost 1-0 to the champions in December but will be hopeful they can secure victory as Leicester are yet to win a League game away from home this season. If it ain't broken, why try and fix it?
Manchester City could join them if they can see off Monaco tonight at the Stade Louis II, but Mills admits that Leicester fans and players would not want to face their fellow Premier League club in the quarter-finals.
'He would have been doing the same training, talking to them the same way, preparing for the games the same way, travelling to the games the same way - everything the same.
"Some of those players at the start of the season, all of a sudden, starting to believe they were big players".
He later added: "They won't forget it and it's likely to not happen again, if we are honest". They took their foot off the accelerator.
Souness also had some choice words over the managerial situation at Leicester City, as well as the decision to give Craig Shakespeare the job until the end of the season, and the reaction of the squad to this change around: "What does the manager do then?"

Morgan certainly wasn't alone in feeling sorry for Ranieri for how Leicester's players stabbed him in the back and are now on cloud nine. They've flirted with relegation, hanging around near the bottom of the table and struggling to the point that they had to fire Claudio Ranieri. All of a sudden he's [Claudio Ranieri] fallen out with most of the dressing room. "I've been all the way down in League Two and to be standing here in the Champions League quarter-finals is incredible".
"They've done it once and they'll do it again - they'll let you down again".
"We had to make the full-backs run and then go into the space when it opened up, but instead we had too many short passes, trying to force our way through, and it wasn't the right way".
