Kyle Walker has passed his best‎ – Pochettino tells Guardiola 

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has said he believes Kyle Walker will be a success at Manchester City, but warns Pep Guardiola that the player’s best days are behind him.

Walker left Spurs for City in a £50million deal, making him the most expensive English full-back in history.

It ended an eight-year stay in North London, but Pochettino insists it was a good deal for them.

“He’s one of the best full-backs in England and Manchester City have paid a lot of money – £50 million – just like they have signed different players to try to get success in the future,” Pochettino said.

“But, for me, I think we have seen the best of Kyle with Tottenham.

“We helped him improve and learn. When you pay this type of amount for a player, it’s because he’s top and because you are at your best. Then it’s normal that he will succeed.

“It’s a big pressure because when you pay for some players, the pressure to perform as well in every game becomes greater.

“It will be different, the pressure, for him. But there is no doubt that he is a quality player, a talented player. And there is no doubt that he will succeed with Manchester City.”
