Ex-Tottenham defender Kyle Walker on Prem title: Grass greener at Man City

Ex-Tottenham defender Kyle Walker on Prem title: Grass greener at Man City
From ESPN - April 15, 2018

Kyle Walker claimed his first Premier League title on Sunday and now the Manchester City defender wants even more.

The England international, who joined City from Tottenham in the summer, has played a pivotal role in his new club securing the title with five games of the season remaining.

City are on schedule to potentially break anumber of records, including most points and most goals, but he says they wo not be considered a great team until they win a number of Premier League trophies.

"To be competing in the Premier League since I was 19, and to play all the games I played in the Premier League, to not win the Premier League, it was a bit devastating for me not to have won it with Tottenham," the 27-year-old told reporters.

"So to come here and now in my first season, it's fantastic for me. You always say: 'Is the grass greener on the other side?' and it looks that way.

"We need to continue. We ca not just stop at one Premier League title if we go on and do that. It needs to be a number of years before we can be regarded as one of the top teams ever to have played in the Premier League.

"We have the youth in the squad and the hunger to go on and do big things."
