Walker: Winning trophies never gets old

Walker: Winning trophies never gets old
Kyle Walker insists his joy for lifting silverware is as strong as ever.

A third Premier League trophy in four seasons was already secured before our final league match of the season against Everton, but Pep Guardiola’s men bowed out in style.

In front of 10,000 City supporters at the Etihad Stadium, goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden, plus a Sergio Aguero brace, earned an emphatic 5-0 victory.

This season represents Walker’s third Premier League title in a City shirt, but the full-back declared his appetite for success will never dwindle.

“It’s been a special one,” he reflected when asked for his thoughts on the campaign.

“The first one was great to get over the line but the feeling doesn't get old when you're up there and lifting the trophy.

“To come away with it and with the fans here, it was excellent.”

A truly memorable afternoon was made all the more special by the goalscoring contribution of Sergio Aguero, who waved goodbye to the Etihad Stadium with a late double.

The Argentine took his City tally up to 260 goals with two typically clinical finishes in a 30-minute cameo from the bench.

For Walker, it was just rewards for our record scorer, who he believes will deservedly go down in history as one of the English game’s greatest strikers.

“For him to come on and do what he’s done, what he’s done for the club and the Premier League, he’s a credit to himself,” our full-back declared.

“I’m fully made up for him, I wish him all the best for the remainder of his career.

"He scored a few goals against me too in a Tottenham shirt!

“It’s an honour. You come across very few players like him in your lifetime.”

Given our march to the title, it seems incredible to think that City were as low as 11th in the table following defeat away to Tottenham Hotspur on 21 November 2020.

However, a club record 28-game unbeaten run, which also entailed a 21-match winning streak in all competitions, preceded that loss in the capital to propel Pep Guardiola’s men to the title in style.

Even when things looked to be slipping out of City’s grasp, Walker insists he was always confident that the team would turn things around.

“Did I believe in the squad? Yes, I did,” he confirmed.

“The quality we have speaks for itself.

“We had to dig deep and show character and I think we did that.”
