Guardiola hails Walker as 'one of Man City's greatest signings'

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hailed Kyle Walker as one of the greatest signings in the club's history.

City paid £50m to sign Walker from rivals Tottenham back in 2017, which equalled a world-record for a defender at the time.

The England defender has gone on to win three Premier League titles, four EFL Cups and an FA Cup under Guardiola.

"He is so consistent and year after year he puts in great performances," said the City boss ahead of Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Atletico Madrid.

"He has been one of the greatest signings for City in modern history because he rarely gets injured and he always performs."
