Trevor Sinclair claims Manchester City 30-year-old has been “unplayable” during this season
Trevor Sinclair has claimed that Kyle Walker this season has been “unplayable” for Manchester City.
Walker, who was named in England’s 33-man provisional squad ahead of Euro 2020, is currently preparing for this weekend’s Champions League final against Chelsea.
The 30-year-old defender seems likely to start for Man City in the final, albeit manager Pep Guardiola can be impossible to predict at times when it comes to picking a starting XI.
Walker has been one of numerous impressive performers at the Etihad Stadium this season.
He earned his third Premier League title winners medal, and is considered one of the very best right-backs around.
Sinclair has raved about the way the £110,000-a-week Englishman has performed this year.
“I think he’s been unplayable this season. He’s in the Champions League final. He’s been so reliable for Manchester City. Fantastic defender. Fantastic option going forward [for England],” Sinclair told talkSPORT.
Kyle Walker this season looks at his very best
For England, having someone with the experience of Walker in the starting XI could be a great way to balance out all the existing youth at Gareth Southgate’s disposal.
The athletic full-back has lightning pace where he’ll fancy himself in a race against anyone. Additionally, the defensive side of his game has improved massively.
He’s got the full trust of Guardiola to give the perfect balance, something he has earned over many years.
Walker has had to deal with criticism at various stages of his career, but there is no denying what a dominant force he can be on the pitch when he’s in the mood.
