Kyle Walker has been speaking ahead of the summer’s Euro 2020, talking about the matters relating to Manchester City’s recent Champions League woes and his future at the club.
Speaking on the suggestions that manager Pep Guardiola got his tactics wrong on the big stage, while exclusively in conversation with the Mail, the Englishman said, “Listen, people can talk. I’ve seen a few things or my mates have text me about tactics, personnel, this that and the other.
“It’s a game of football, it’s 95 minutes and anything can happen. Obviously we wanted the result to go our way but the manager, or whoever, he picks who he feels can go and get the result and what’s best for the club. When he gets it right nobody says anything and when he gets it wrong – or when they think he’s got it wrong – people are questioning things.
“I think it’s a little bit unfair sometimes when as soon as Manchester City don’t win then it’s tactics or maybe players on the pitch, but we needed to do more and it’s as simple as that.
“I don’t think we created enough in the game and I don’t think I’m speaking out of turn by saying that, I think everyone could tell on the pitch.”
The 31-year-old hasn’t given up on his Champions League ambitions, and feels that Manchester City’s position is strong enough to keep pushing for a victorious campaign.
“I think with the squad we’ve got, with the manager we’ve got, with the club that we’re playing for we should be going and winning the Champions League, we all know that. We all know that the players, at least since I’ve been there, have been signed to go and get it.”
