Man City fullback Walker: Guardiola has taught me about football

Manchester City fullback Kyle Walker says playing under Pep Guardiola has helped him to understand football better.

The 31-year-old has been a first-team regular under Guardiola since the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss signed him from Tottenham in 2017.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5, Walker praised his manager's influence on his career.

"He is the one who has made me understand football so much better," he said.

He added: "Do I think I could have played in a back three five years ago? Definitely not. I think my understanding of the game, my knowledge of the game - where the press is going to come from, learning to go into the midfield, to balance it off people, come in to receive the ball at the correct angle. So many little things you don't really hear of."
