Kyle Walker was dishing wisdom today as he spoke prior to the Champions League match vs Brugges. He had much to say about the team spirit, how their getting along and much more.
Starting with the teams mentality-
“I wouldn’t say we’ve lacked in goals because there have been a number of games where we have put in five,” he said at his pre-match press conference.
“We put five past Arsenal and five against Brugge. It’s kind of like, OK City don’t score they need a striker, but when City score five all of a sudden we are doing quite well without a striker.
“We are a team. I think this team has built itself on those foundations over the last four years. We lost Kun in the summer who was the hero, the standout, the post boy for this club.
“Apart from that, everyone is on a level playing field. There’s no egos. We all work hard for each other. We all run for each other.
“It’s 11 players on the pitch, not one, two or three superstars that everyone else runs for.”
“Hopefully we can provide the same level of performance and result,” he said at his pre-match press conference.
“It is important after the the last couple of games that we get off to a winning start again and get back on track and hopefully we can go on a good run.
“We have to get back to winning ways. We lost against West Ham in the Carabao Cup and then Crystal Palace come to the Etihad and win 2-0.
“We know the standard has dropped in the past two games. The best thing about football is that it’s always the next game and you can put things right.
“It is a massive week for us now with the Manchester derby coming up.
“We need to make sure the morale is back up and the lads are all singing off the same hymn sheet and playing well so we can attack this game and go into the Manchester derby good form and a little more confidence than we’ve got at the minute.”
Walker has become more wiser and usually smarter under Pep, on the field anyway, and he could be a crucial part of this season for Man City.
