“We can dominate the English game” – Man City defender makes bold claim in early stages of the new season

Manchester City full-back Kyle Walker believes that Pep Guardiola’s side can rule English football for years to come, stating that he is ‘hungry’ for more success.

Walker enjoyed a stellar year at The Etihad last season after swapping North London for Manchester in 2017, picking up Premier League and League Cup winner’s medals after making 50 appearances for the team in all competitions. The 28-year-old was a crucial part of Guardiola’s starting XI and impressed with his dynamic style and much improved defensive ability.

The England international earned a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s final squad for the World Cup in Russia this summer and he featured prominently during the team’s run to the semifinals. He returned to club duty after an extended break buoyant and full of energy ahead of the new season and he should once again play a key role as City look to retain the league title.

However, according to BT Sport, Walker doesn’t just have his eye on one more trophy this year, revealing that he hopes City can blow away the rest of the competition for many years to come.

The English defender told BT Sport: “I don’t want to sound big-headed, but we want to dominate English football.

“I think we’ve got the players here, and we’ve definitely got the manager, to do that, so we need to keep listening.

“Every day is a learning day and you can always adjust to different tactics, adjust to different formations and that’s something we need to take on collectively as a group – that’s manager and players – to make sure that we can dominate the English game.”

City has certainly made the best possible start on the road to reaching Walker’s lofty ambitions, beating Arsenal at The Emirates last Sunday 2-0 and they will be hopeful of adding another 3 points to their tally this week when they take on Huddersfield at The Etihad on Sunday.
