Owen Hargreaves has hailed Kyle Walker’s departure from Tottenham for “winning a trophy” as he chases a historic treble with Manchester City.
Kyle Walker secured a £45m move from Tottenham Hotspur to Manchester City back in 2017 (BBC Sports), despite the north London club’s under-management under Mauricio Pochettino. is in the middle of its rise.
As Hargreaves mentioned, it was a smart move as Guardiola’s Manchester City are now “favourites for everything” with two games standing in their way to a treble, as he told Premier League production (21/05/23 at 6:5pm).
Manchester United in the FA Cup final – the only English side to have won the treble – and Italian giants and Euro 2010 winners Inter Milan stood in the way of City making history.
You can bet Walker starts both games as he looks to add to his five Premier League titles and countless League Cups by doing the unthinkable.
Of course, with plenty of football still to come and drama around the corner, Hargreaves shares his thoughts on Manchester City and Walker.
“You want to win more,” Hargreaves said. “When you win something, you want to win more. That’s the mentality of this group.
“You think about Kyle (Walker), he left Tottenham to win trophies. Five Premier League trophies and the potential to win the Champions League. They are favorites for everything. They can be one of the best players in the history of the Premier League, That says something.”
Will Harry Kane look at Kyle Walker jealously?
Walker’s trophies have piled up and at 32, the right-back has plenty more to come.
But someone like his former Spurs team-mate Harry Kane has to watch and think “what if?”.
The England captain is arguably more talented than Walker, but Kane has zero trophies and, in his goal-crazed and record-breaking career, is on a path that could lead to nothing.
