Wenger labels Walker as England’s weakest link, Tottenham Hotspur fans react

Kyle Walker was one of Tottenham Hotspur’s key players before joining Manchester City last year.

The right-back slotted into Pep Guardiola’s XI at the Etihad Stadium, but he has been given a new role to play on the international stage.

At the World Cup in Russia, the 28-year-old has been positioned in a three-man defence.

Right centre-back is not Walker’s natural position, and former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has described the Premier League champion as the weakest link in the Three Lions’ team.

As reported by The Telegraph, the Frenchman, who spent 22 years in charge of the Gunners before leaving at the end of the season, claimed that Walker is not a “real defender”.

“He’s not a real defender, and especially not a central defender. He can be subject to defensive mistakes, which he would not pay for when he plays as a right-back.”

The City player gave away a penalty in England’s opening group match against Tunisia, which ended in a 2-1 victory for the Three Lions.

Walker kept his place for the 6-1 thumping over Panama, but it is unclear whether he will feature in the clash against Belgium on Thursday.

There are not many things that Tottenham fans and Wenger will agree on, but they seem to on this occasion.
