Kyle Walker has admitted he was hurt by Mauricio Pochettino’s criticism of him, and revealed he left Tottenham because the Argentine told him he was not part of his plans.
The England international joined Manchester City in a £45million deal in July 2017, and has since won the Premier League title and Carabao Cup.
Drink-driving stress could have contributed to Lloris injury, says Spurs boss
Tottenham boss Pochettino claimed in a book published last year that Walker wanted to leave the north London club.
He also accused the defender of an “alarming lack of respect” to Spurs after insisting that he forced through the move to Pep Guardiola’s side.
Mauricio Pochettino believes the stress goalkeeper Hugo Lloris court appearance could have contributed to his injury
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed the stress of Hugo Lloris’ drink-driving conviction may have contributed to the thigh injury the goalkeeper suffered against Manchester United.
Spurs have suffered a downturn in fortunes on the pitch, coinciding with Lloris’ injury and placing pressure on Pochettino who has seen his side’s form drop in both the Premier League and the Champions League.
Lloris’ injury came in the game after it was announced he had been arrested for drink-driving, and he has not featured since he suffered the thigh problem in the 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27.
