Tonight will be even tougher for Walker, as Chelsea and Arsenal â€” the teams who beat Spurs to qualification for the worldâ€™s premier club competition in each of the last two seasons â€” resume their challenge.
â€śIt is difficult to watch those games,â€ť he told the London Evening Standard. â€śIt has been two seasons now. We finished fourth in 2012 but missed out because Chelsea beat Bayern in the final.
â€śAnd then last year, Arsenal pipped us by one point, so it is always hard. You sit there and watch those matches and know that you have a game later in the week but weâ€™re in a good competition, too.
â€śThe Europa League isnâ€™t a Mickey Mouse competition. Iâ€™d love to go and win it and get some medals under my belt for Tottenham.â€ť
