Walker excitement over Villas-Boas’ Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur and England right-back Kyle Walker has revealed his excitement at the prospect of working with the club’s new Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas, the Guardian has reported.

Walker, who is expected to recover from a broken toe in May in time for the new Premier League season, has said he believes Villas-Boas’ preferred style and formation will be of benefit to him as a forward-thinking defender. “I’m excited to work with him,” Walker said, adding: “He’s going to give another dimension to my game. If he does play 4-3-3 it will benefit me, showing what I can do further up the field and letting the winger worry about me.

Having missed out on participating in Euro 2012 with England due to the broken toe suffered in Spurs’ third-last game of the season against Bolton Wanderers, the same injury meant Walker could not be considered as part of Team GB for the London Olympics. The former Sheffield United defender admitted he was disappointed to miss out on international duty this summer, particularly after the blow of Tottenham losing their Champions League place and allowing Arsenal to leapfrog over them into third place.
