More Details

Walker has not played for Manchester City since injuring his hamstring while representing England in a friendly against Brazil last month.

Walker missed Premier League games against Arsenal, Aston Villa, and Crystal Palace, as well as the opening leg of Man City’s Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid, which ended 3-3.

The 33-year-old returned to the matchday squad for Saturday’s 5-1 victory over Luton Town, but he was ultimately benched for the entirety of the game. Guardiola has said Walker could play against Real Madrid, but he has yet to determine if he will start the second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

“He feels much better but he was injured, so now we will see in the next few days,” Guardiola told reporters when asked about Walker’s chances of starting against Real Madrid in Saturday’s post-match press conference.

“But he’s good, he feels good. Maybe he can help with minutes because it’s a ‘final’, but I don’t want to lose him for a long time if he gets injured. He will train a bit more now and we will decide.

“I know how important Kyle is against the players from Real Madrid. But he was not in Madrid and Manuel Akanji, Josko Gvardiol, John Stones and Ruben Dias played incredibly well. We will see.”

Alf-Inge Haaland has revived his battle with Roy Keane after the Manchester United legend his son, Manchester City star Erling Haaland, to a ‘League Two footballer’.

Following a bad performance against title rivals Arsenal, Haaland was singled out for criticism, with Keane being harsh in his appraisal of the striker.

‘In front of goal he is the best in the world but his general play for such a player is so poor,’ the 52-year-old said.
