What Man City star Kyle Walker said about Tottenham transfer has left Spurs fans SHOCKED

The England international was left red-faced in midweek when his former side dumped him out of the Champions League.

Walker won the Premier League in his first season at Manchester City after completing a £45million switch from north London.

Yet before the sides met for the third time in ten days at the Etihad, Walker appeared to claim that it was Spurs who wanted to get rid of him.

“I wanted to prove they were wrong to sell me,” the right-back told Patrick Davison.

“I don’t want to sound big-headed, but it’s not normal for us, we don’t tend to lose that many games. It’s a big, big kick in the teeth.

“But we have the likes of David Silva, Kun [Aguero], Kevin [De Bruyne], Fernandinho who get us up, get us together, and it’s another important game against Tottenham.”

Tottenham supporters went to social media, to vent their surprise at the comments which they believe to be false.

“I think every Tottenham fan was shocked by his comment,” one tweeted.

Another said: “It’s been 2 years and Kyle Walker is still trotting out the line that it was Spurs’ decision to sell rather than him.”

Walker appears to contradict Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham fans’ version of events, they believe it was defender who forced his way out of the club in 2017.

In Guillem Balague’s book Brave New World, the Argentine boss said that Walker informed him before the FA Cup semi-final that he wanted to leave.

The extract reads: “Walker came to my office after the Watford game. ‘Gaffer, I’ve been at Tottenham for nine years. I’ve thought about it and my heart isn’t here any more. Nor is my head. I’ve given all I have to give. I wanted to tell you before I tell my agent that I want to leave this summer.’

“Kyle, you have to stay professional. There’s a month and a half of the season to go. We’re battling for the Premier League and FA Cup. We have to be focused and finish the campaign strongly.’

“OK, gaffer. But it’s already decided.’

“Well, that doesn’t just depend on you or me. It depends on the club, above all. You’ve disappointed me because you’ve decided to tell me that you want to leave when there is a month and bit left in the competition.

“You could’ve sucked it up, kept quiet, trained, played and helped the team when not picked and at the end of the season you could’ve come and told me.’”

Walker later hit back in September 2018 in an interview with the Daily Mail, claiming Pochettino’s comments were false.

He said: “I was hurt a lot by that. He said his door was always open and I thought it was a private meeting we had. So I kept quiet but then he went and wrote about it… or his version of it.

“If he was going to do that he might as well have called a press conference and told everyone. He told one side of the story, but it’s a side of a story I don’t agree with.”

Man City got their own back on Saturday lunchtime by winning the match 1-0.
