Kyle Walker insists that winning the Champions League would see Manchester City finally given the credit they deserve.

Kyle Walker has been a part of the Manchester City side that has won the Premier League back to back, three consecutive League Cups, a domestic treble, and of course a 100 point season.

But the England defender feels his side don’t get the credit they deserve despite their amazing achievements.

Now though Walker feels that if City can go on to win the Champions League, not only will it mark a season on a  par with any other, it will also finally see people sit up and recognize what they have accomplished.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said:

“I think last year gets really overlooked in terms of what we’ve achieved.”

“Our first season we got 100 points, and that was: ‘Oh my gosh’, but to kind of conquer England last year, take everything.”

“We thought that was a massive achievement for the team and where we’ve come from. To win it back-to-back, something a team hadn’t done for many years.”

“I think if we win the Champions League it would be right among that because it’s something I feel this club needs to step up again in the right direction.”

“We’ve proved we can be Premier League winners, but one thing missing is the Champions League, and that’s one thing we as players want, and definitely what the manager wants again.”

“We owe it to this club, which has supported each and every player to achieve what they wanted to achieve. For the club, I think it’s what they need as well.”
