Andros Townsend has spoken to the official Premier League youtube Channel about his former Tottenham teammate Kyle Walker.
The Everton striker praised them £150,000 per week Manchester City defender when asked about the fastest players he has shared a dressing room with.
What’s the matter?
Well, we continue to talk with the Premier League youtube, Townsend said: “I would probably say Kyle Walker when I was at Spurs. He’s fast now and he’s 31 or 32 so imagine what he was like when he was 22, 23, 24. It’s a joke. He hasn’t lost anything either.”
In truth, we doubt we could think of anyone else for Townsend – Walker is incredibly quick and shows no signs of slowing down.
The England international, who Tottenham sold to Manchester City in 2017, was ranked as the Premier League’s fastest player in the 2019/20 season.
As the Manchester evening news Show, Walker recorded a top speed of 23.49 mph, beating Adama Traore who was second at 23.48 mph.
Kyle Walker would succeed at Tottenham
In our view, Walker would be the ideal right-back for Antonio Conte’s full-back system.
Frequently charging up and down the right flank, the 31-year-old offers a brilliant attacking valve thanks to his pace and the timing of his runs.
Imagine a Dejan Kulusevski right flank with Walker overlapping the Swede – Spurs would be too hot to handle.
The England international is unlikely to return any time soon, so it’s imperative that Conte finds someone more like him, or Achraf Hakimi, who was so effective in executing his plans at Inter Milan.
In our opinion, players like Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty just aren’t good enough, although the latter has improved in recent weeks.
If Conte can find someone like Walker, then expect Spurs to level up next season.
