What has former Labour MP David Miliband said about Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn?

In an interview with the Times published on 25 Feb 2017, David Miliband said:

"I’m obviously deeply concerned that Labour is further from power than at any stage in my lifetime."

He did not appear to criticise Jeremy Corbyn directly but his comment came after the loss of the historically Labour Copeland by-election to the Tories on 23 Feb 2017, which was widely blamed on Corbyn's leadership.
