Tonight will be even tougher for Walker, as Chelsea and Arsenal — the teams who beat Spurs to qualification for the world’s premier club competition in each of the last two seasons — resume their challenge.
“It is difficult to watch those games,” he told the London Evening Standard. “It has been two seasons now. We finished fourth in 2012 but missed out because Chelsea beat Bayern in the final.
“And 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 we’re in a good competition, too.
“The Europa League isn’t a Mickey Mouse competition. I’d love to go and win it and get some medals under my belt for Tottenham.”
