Tottenham defender Walker believes Spurs can still reach Champions League
Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker believes his side can still break into the top four of the Premier League and qualify for next season’s Champions League, the Daily Telegraph has reported.
Spurs are currently fifth in the table, three points behind Newcastle United and six adrift of Arsenal in third. With four games to go Walker has revealed his confidence that Harry Redknapp’s side can peg back the Magpies. He said: “With the players we’ve got, we could beat anyone. We just have to finish stronger these last four games, get maximum points, and hopefully the season will fix itself. We can do it.”
Walker was on Sunday named the PFA Young Player of the Year after a season that has seen the former Sheffield United defender make 43 appearances for Tottenham as well as become an England international, making his debut during the Three Lions’ 1-0 win over world champions Spain at Wembley in November 2011.
The 21-year-old moved to White Hart Lane from the Blades in 2009, remaining on loan at Brammall Lane until January 2010. Walker has also had temporary spells with Queens Park Rangers and Aston Villa before establishing himself as the first-choice right-back under Tottenham manager Redknapp.
