Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbapp has showered praises on Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker, raving about his explosive pace in an interview with Football France – which have got some of the club’s fans talking.
The France international is one of the fastest footballers on the planet, and it is normal for him to admire that quality in other players.
Mbappe experienced the speed of the England international firsthand when Man City and PSG met in the first-leg of last season’s Champions League semi-finals, and he definitely met his match in Walker.
“There are also players less explosive from a standing start like Kyle Walker at Manchester City,” the youngster told the French magazine.
“He is like a tank once he hits his speed once he gets into it.”
Walker’s pace has been crucial to Man City’s style of play under manager Pep Guardiola, and he does not appear to be slowing down despite being 31 years old.
England manager Gareth Southgate will be relying on that quality and the defender’s versatility during the European Championship.
These Mbappi’s comment on Kyle Walker has prompt plenty of Sky Blues to react on social media.
