Son Heung-min is irrelevant again… Walker, Tottenham, trophy sweep after leaving Tottenham

Kyle Walker’s departure from Tottenham Hotspur has been a solid move.

Manchester City defeated West Ham United 3-1 in the final round of the 2023-24 Premier League (PL) season at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England, on Tuesday morning (Jan. 20). The win secured City’s unprecedented fourth consecutive PL title.

Walker started and contributed to City’s victory. In 90 minutes of full-time action, he completed 97% of his passes (111 attempts – 108 successful), had four interceptions, and six recoveries. Fotmob, a soccer stats outlet, applauded Walker, giving him an 8.0 rating.

For Walker, joining City was a major turning point in his career. Score90, a soccer website, shared Walker’s story on social media on Tuesday.

Walker joined City in the 2017-18 season. His quick feet allowed him to cover space behind the defense, and his accurate kicking and buildup were essential skills for a fullback in modern soccer. Pep Guardiola took notice of Walker and immediately made him a regular starter.

Since joining City, Walker has been on a winning streak. He has won six PL titles, including this season, the UEFA Champions League (UCL) last season, two FA Cups, four English Football League Cups (EFL Cup), and one FIFA Club World Cup. He’s lifted 17 trophies.

He still has one more chance. On May 25 at 11 p.m., they’ll face Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

With the Spurs, on the other hand, he was far from winning. Having played for Spurs since the 2011-12 season, Walker didn’t win a single title until the 2016-17 토토사이트 season. He became a completely different player after his move to City.

There are plenty of other players who have won trophies after leaving Spurs. Tangi Ndombele won the title with Napoli last season, and Harry Winks has done it with Leicester City this season.

Compare that to Son Heung-min, who hasn”t won a title in his entire career. While Walker left Tottenham, Son stayed at Spurs. While his individual prowess is unquestionable – he was the top scorer in 2021-22 and has 10 goals and 10 assists this season for the third time in his career – his trophies are not.
