Kyle Walker reveals next ambition following Premier League quadruple and issues warning to Manchester United and Liverpool



| Last Updated:


Manchester City captain Kyle Walker has issued a stern warning to rivals Manchester United and Liverpool over the club’s intentions in the coming years.

It was another treble of silverware for the four-time consecutive Premier League champions this season, who added to their top-flight success with a UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup success in the seasons prior.

Unfortunately for the club, their trophy-winning ambitions ended in disappointment at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon, falling to a narrow 1-2 defeat to Manchester United in the FA Cup Final.

As well as aiming to reclaim that particular title from their city rivals, Pep Guardiola and his side will also likely have big ambitions at Champions League level, and perhaps in the League Cup during the forthcoming season.

Speaking prior to Manchester City’s FA Cup final meeting with Manchester United on Saturday, captain Kyle Walker issued a simple question when quizzed on the club’s next ambitions following another record-breaking domestic season.

“Why can’t we do five in a row?” Walker said in reference to the club’s historic achievement of becoming the first side in English football history to win the top-flight in four consecutive seasons.

“The motivation speaks for itself,” he continued. “To be the first team to do the double-double, the first team to win four in a row, the first team since Manchester United to do the treble; we keep knocking down these hurdles and this is another that we need to knock down.

“But it’s against our rivals who live in the same city and are going to want to rain on our parade… With each trophy we win and each major trophy we’re going to be closer. Pep is now the manager who has won the most (league titles) except Sir Alex Ferguson so we’re building this dynasty and legacy that people will look on this team for generations to come.”

Walker was also keen to point out the shift in fandom since he first arrived at Manchester City from Tottenham Hotspur during the summer transfer window of 2017, with the Etihad club’s rapid national and global rise evident on the streets.

“When I first came here you saw a lot of United shirts and now you see a lot of kids wearing City shirts,” Walker pointed out. “We’re swinging the pendulum but we need to keep going because the United and Liverpool teams did it for years and years.”

Kyle Walker is expected to be once again at the centre of transfer interest this summer, with Saudi Arabia understood to be weighing up a move for the England international, as well as midfield talent Matheus Nunes.
