Manchester City

Walker glad he made City switch

16th April 2018, 01:58 by Michael Holland

Kyle Walker says Manchester City being crowned Premier League champions justifies his decision to leave Tottenham.

It had been a tough few days for City, who had lost three successive games in which they were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and missed out on the chance to seal title glory against rivals Manchester United.

They eventually got the job though, as a scintillating 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday put the champagne on ice and the corks were popped less than 24 hours later when Manchester United surprisingly lost at home to West Brom on Sunday.

The 27-year-old left Spurs on bad terms but stands by his decision, which he now believes has been justified.

He said: "We won the Carabao Cup and that was a step in the right direction for me but to be competing in the Premier League since I was 19 and to play all the games I played in the Premier League, to not win the Premier League, it was a bit devastating for me not to have won it with Tottenham.

"So to come here and win in my first season, it's fantastic for me. You always say is the grass greener on the other side, and it looks it.

"Whatever you read, I know what really happened. I know the truth behind it and so does the Tottenham boss. But I won't stand here and start slagging people off because that's not what I'm about.

"I left because it was a time in my career that I needed to move on. And luckily it's worked out."
