Walker was a dead-cert for England’s Euro 2012 squad until he broke a toe at the end of the season.
The PFA Young Player of the Year said: “It was difficult to take.
“It could have been my fault. I had injections for the last three weeks of the season but I just wanted to play for Tottenham.
“I just wanted them to get in to the Champions League.
“But footballers have these setbacks in their careers and otherwise it’s been like a dream for me this season, a perfect year.”
