Kyle Walker bids adieu to a successful 2023, setting eyes on future Man City glory

Defender Kyle Walker asserts that Manchester City has closed the chapter on their remarkable accomplishments in 2023 and is now focused on a robust second half of the season.

The recent Club World Cup triumph, adding to Manchester City’s Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, and UEFA Super Cup victories, marked the completion of a successful year for captain Kyle Walker.

Despite some questions about City’s form this season, the comeback win against Everton demonstrated their determination in defending the title. Walker is confident that, with 20 matches remaining and a five-point gap to leaders Liverpool, City will excel in the coming months.

“On the back of winning the Champions League we desperately wanted to win (in Saudi) and finish off the piece. It was good to go and finally tick that off the list,” said the 33-year-old.

“It’s important now to draw a line under it and it’s a big end to the season when we’re in the competition we want to fight for again.

“I don’t think there was many things going wrong on the field except the results. We were playing well, but this game is about winning and we weren’t doing that.

“But that’s football and in the Premier League you can never let your guard down, you’ve got to keep going until the last minute.”

Walker backs City squad to keep their title hopes alive

The unwavering winning mentality of City’s players remains unquestionable, given their consistent performance over several seasons.

This was evident once again at Goodison Park, where they bounced back after conceding to Everton’s first attempt on goal in the first half, despite dominating the match.

Stellar goals from the impressive Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva, along with a Julian Alvarez penalty, reversed the situation, propelling City back into the top four and rekindling their aspirations for the league summit.

“I think it shows the determination and belief in this squad. That’s what this team is all about, digging in, not quitting,” added Walker.

“We’re all good players, we can all play out there, but when the going gets tough it’s about a collective team performance that gets each individual if they’ve made a mistake or they’re doing well, to get you out of that stuff.”
